Breaking: NYS Assembly Budget Resolution Funds the COLA, Housing Hike

Today, the NYS Assembly released its budget resolution that funds the Cost of Living Adjustment we’ve all worked for since the beginning of this year’s budget session, along with $10 million more for the housing rate increase.

The Assembly resolution, when negotiated with the Senate’s resolution and the Governor’s budget will form the basis for a final budget agreement to be ostensibly reached later this month.

So…we’re 33% home. Stay tuned for details about the details of the Senate’s resolution when it’s released and look for the impact of a news conference to be held next Wednesday.
