Statement from State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli
Regarding Governor Paterson’s Proposed Savings Plan

“For awhile my office has been saying that New York State is facing serious fiscal challenges and spending well beyond our means. The downturn in the economy has now elevated the problems, limiting our options and creating significant out-year budget gaps going forward,” DiNapoli said. “Governor Paterson is right to propose actions and bring everyone to the table to address the state’s growing budget problems now rather than later. Delay will only increase the degree of difficulty in fixing our problems.”
