State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli
Statement Regarding Governor’s Request
to Reduce Agency Spending

“The Enacted Budget spends too much in light of today’s economic realties. Governor Paterson has rightly called for state agencies to cut spending. This is a necessary step. But Albany should keep the erasers handy because we have more to do. Every day New Yorkers are facing hard choices; government must do so, too. My office began examining our spending weeks ago and I expect to meet the goal of 3.35 percent.”
