Governor Cuomo proposes a budget today and little new is expected. Budgets are not the news item they used to be as they are so complex, it cannot be digested by the media and public doesn't care. Like most aspects of government from towns to cities to counties to school districts to Albany and to Washington, the budget process is just not something anyone cares about. Congress hasn't passed a budget in years, yet life continues.
In state budgets, there is always some kind of "deficit" looming...there will be no stated tax increases, but that's not always a true statement, and we will hear that education is getting more money and that Sandy-damaged houses will be bought out.
