Comptroller Says New York Strongest Fiscally in Years

ALBANY -

New York’s comptroller said Monday that state government is in better fiscal shape than it has been for years but could face future budget gaps, depending on unspecified savings and projected tax collection increases. Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli reviewed the administration’s proposed $137.2 billion budget for the fiscal year starting April 1 and said that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Legislature deserve credit for closing structural budget gaps that plagued the state for years.
