Budget Reform

Despite some respectable reforms adopted in 2007, New York's budget process is still complicated, opaque and rushed. Citizens Union believes that the citizens of New York State deserve better, and has long stood for budget reform. The process must provide a meaningful role for rank and file members of the Legislature, and most importantly, allow for substantive public debate on budget decisions, especially during these fiscally challenging times. Citizens Union is committed to working with the Governor and the State Legislature to build upon their increasing embrace of budget reform and increased transparency by enacting further and much-needed changes to the budget process.
