Statement from State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli
“The completion of the Albany County District Attorney’s report is a welcome development. While other investigations are still ongoing, it’s vitally important that state government gets back to work on the critical issues facing New Yorkers.
“Hard choices confront us, particularly in the upcoming budget process. Last spring, my office issued a report that found that New York cannot sustain its current level of spending. Governor Spitzer and the legislative leaders have each identified the very real challenges that lie ahead.
“It’s time for state government to move forward and effectively address these challenges.”
