'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Economic development is the centerpiece of the newly agreed-upon budget. Governor Andrew Cuomo will discuss some of the plans with us on the show.

Then, reaction to the budget agreement.

We begin with Stephen Acquario of the New York State Association of Counties on the Governor’s plans for mandate relief and a state takeover of Medicaid.

There is new money in the budget as well as a new 3-year Foreclosure Prevention plan that Kirsten Keefe of the Empire Justice Center will have details about.

Not everyone is pleased with the plan – advocates for education like Billy Easton of the Alliance for Quality Education say policies in Albany are making educating our children less effective rather than more.
