Governor Releases 30-Day Amendments
Last week the Governor did release his 30-day amendments to his original Executive Budget submission. The vast majority of these amendments were technical changes. A couple of substantive changes of note include: $28 million funding for state owed ORDA ski areas including $20 million for Gore and Whiteface and $8 million for Belleayre. Also, $300 million was added in Capital Projects under the New York Works program for "...transportation infrastructure and facilities in the five-year department of transportation plan for 2015-16 through 2019-20..." - specific projects were not defined in the budget documents.
