Gov. Hochul Delays New CUNY Budget

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–New York Governor Kathy Hochul couldn’t come to a deal with lawmakers to pass a new state budget by the Apr. 1 deadline, which includes new CUNY and SUNY budgets. 

Hochul had proposed a record-setting $216.3 billion executive budget, but state senators are shooting for a $6 billion increase. Bail reform and casinos are a few key issues holding the budget back.
