APRIL 5, 2018 | LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY
On March 30, 2018, the New York State Legislature and Governor reached an agreement on the 2018-2019 State Budget. Faced with a significant deficit, the Executive Budget had proposed sharp cuts in services, with those cuts disproportionately targeting programs that serve and support low-income families and children. The Legislative one-house budgets, particularly the Assembly budget, included proposals to shield New York children and families from some of the harshest proposals.
