Assemblywoman Lupardo On Budget Negotiations

Posted:
Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo is speaking out just before budget negotiations are set to begin in Albany next week.

Lupardo outlines the final steps prior to negotiations.

She says she hopes the budget will support things like road and bridge repair, support for schools and the governor's projects like revitalization and energy efficiency.

However, Governor Cuomo previously stated if the legislature does not pass an ethics reform then he will not agree to a budget.

Lupardo, says she agrees with the governor.

State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo said, "I support all of the measures that he is proposing and it underscores how important it is to address these issues. So while it may be hardball tactics he obviously feels that's the best away to get it accomplished. And if we can't get it done now there really is no other time we can get it done."

Lupardo also says she's confident an ethics reform will be agreed on before the budget deadline April 1st.
