Brown: State Budget Deficit Is Out of Control

A statement from Assemblyman Keith Brown (R,C- Northport)

“The big takeaway from the Governor’s speech this yesterday is that the state’s budget deficit is out of control and the governor doesn’t really have a concrete plan. Eerily absent from his speech this morning was any mention of the deficit the MTA is facing. Instead, we were told repeatedly that the federal government, not the governor, is to blame for the hardship and economic dismay that followed his response to the pandemic. We need to be focused on how we can balance keeping people safe and reopening our small businesses so that our state and our people can get back on their feet.”
