New York NOW

Policy Experts Analyze State Budget

Video duration: 26:46

Experts on state policy and fiscal issues analyze the recently passed budget, compare it to past years, and discuss the future of on-time state budgets. Is this year's budget an expansion of Cuomo's agenda or a reassertion of power by the legislature? We also head down the Innovation Trail for a look at the NY DREAM Act - legislation aimed at helping young immigrants pay for higher education.
