STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON STATE SENATE BUDGET RESOLUTION

“The State Senate Democrats’ budget resolution recognizes the unfairness of the Governor’s proposal to eliminate revenue sharing for New York City, but only restores half of the cut. It also fails to take common-sense measures to generate revenue that could offset a devastating school aid cut and prevent 8,500 teacher layoffs in New York City. While the resolution does include laudable restorations to senior centers, homeless shelters and indigent health care, all eyes will be on the Senate, and the entire Legislature, as we enter the home stretch in this crucial process. The City cannot afford to be treated unfairly, and I urge voters to join me in sending that message to Albany.”
