ALBANY, NY – Senator Elijah Reichlin-Melnick (D-Rockland/Westchester) has released the following statement:

“New York State’s 2022-23 budget enacts a financial plan for the state which will make life a little bit easier for my constituents in the lower Hudson Valley. The budget provides record funding for public schools, pre-K, and childcare, makes a historic investment in combating climate change and protecting our environment, improves public safety, and cuts taxes for middle class and working families. With this budget, New York is strengthening our infrastructure, education, and communities in a fiscally responsible manner.”
