NYS Budget Principles Statewide Tour
February 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
PUSH Buffalo, 429 Plymouth Avenue, Buffalo NY.
We are now engaged in a state wide educational effort to urge our elected officials from every part of the state to come together to create a budget that, for the first time, deals seriously with wealth inequality and invests in all our people. The New Hope, New York Budget Principles offer a path forward to focus on fighting poverty and racism, reducing inequality, strengthening our democracy, protecting our environment, fixing our state and local tax structure and creating a bottom up economic development model for the state.
The Governor and the legislature are now in the throes of negotiating a state budget which is due April 1. We have developed the New Hope, New York Budget Principles which we wish to have guide our law makers in crafting a budget. Far too many New Yorkers have been left behind in this economic recovery, while the number of millionaires has increased 72% since 2009.
