The following information was received by the NY Alliance for Inclusion and Innovation
Governor Andrew Cuomo will deliver the annual budget message to the State Legislature on Tuesday, January 21st at 1:00PM. According to Article VII of the State Constitution, the Governor is required to submit a budget to the State Legislature on or before the second Tuesday following the first day of the legislative session. That budget is to be balanced and include a complete plan of expenditures. The Constitution also requires the Governor to submit budget bills at the same time the budget is submitted.
Therefore, the NY Alliance expects the release of the proposed 2020-2021 Executive Budget proposal on Tuesday, January 21st along with the respective pieces of legislation detailing plans for the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities and plans to close the current State Budget gap. Likewise, we anticipate the State Legislature to release the schedule of budget hearings shortly following the release of the Executive Budget proposal.
The NY Alliance will provide members with a detailed analysis of the budget proposal and share information as to the budget hearings to be held by the Assembly and Senate.
