State Comptroller DiNapoli Statement
on Revenue Consensus

Today’s revenue consensus announcement is a solid, pro-active step toward addressing New York’s budget crisis. The consensus is on time; now the governor and the legislature need to work toward an on-time budget that begins the process of restoring fiscal stability to New York State.

The forecast seems reasonable at this point, although, as the past year has demonstrated, much of this is a moving target. The budget process should be an exercise in caution.
