New York Passes 2011-2012 Budget

  • Rating: NR
New York's 2011-2012 budget caps spending on education and Medicaid and eliminates 3,700 prison beds to close this year's deficit without raising taxes and cuts next year's projected deficit from $15 billion to $2 billion. State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R) calls it a responsible budget, though protesters at the Capitol clearly disagree. 'New York NOW' offers analysis of the new budget.
