NY State Senator James Seward issued comments on the chamber’s budget resolution for fiscal year 2018-19 which was adopted earlier this week. Seward says that at the start of the legislative session he pointed to the need to make New York more affordable for families and businesses while creating opportunities for future growth and the senate’s budget plan reinforces those goals. Seward adds that his focus will be on delivering a fiscally sound plan that meets the priorities and needs of the region.
