Please join us on July 14th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for a panel discussion featuring New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica, Secretary to the State Senate Finance Committee David Friedfel, and Secretary to the State Assembly Ways and Means Committee Blake Washington. The panel discussion will be moderated by Rockefeller Institute President Robert Megna.
After a year of great uncertainty, New York State leaders came together to develop a 2021-2022 budget that would serve a blueprint for the state’s COVID-19 recovery. The budget included initiatives to assist those disproportionately impacted by the economic fallout of COVID-19, increased state support to school districts, and provided supplemental funding for tuition assistance, mental hygiene, and public safety. These plans were offset with reductions in other spending, federal aid, and targeted tax increases.
Join us for a discussion with the individuals who shaped this unique budget to learn more about how it came to be and what it says about New York State’s policy priorities moving forward.
