ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers will soon begin several weeks of hearings on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's $152 billion state budget proposal.
The first hearing Tuesday is likely to focus on Cuomo's call to make state tuition free for middle class students.
The second hearing, on Wednesday, will be dedicated to workforce development.
Future meetings will delve into taxes and state spending on public safety, economic development, health care and social services, education and the environment.
