Counties Detail State Budget Priorities for Indigent Defense Services
The New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) has asked State Legislators to revise the Governor's budget proposal on public defense to include a partial state takeover of the state-mandated program.
 
The Governor's Budget released in January provides state funding for new expansions to public defense services, but does not provide for any relief from the $370 million that county property taxpayers annually provide for the services, which are the constitutional responsibility of state government.
