Senator Chuck Schumer is praising President Joe Biden’s budget proposal, stating it would be a “boon for the empire state.”
The proposal includes investments in upstate New York, such as child care subsidies, mental health treatment funding, and funding for the restoration of Braddock’s Bay in Greece through the “Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.”
“This budget proposal was created in places like Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Albany, Binghamton and our smaller communities,” says Schumer. “It fits the needs of families and gives New Yorkers the kind of hope and optimism that our state and the United States of America is moving in the right direction.”
Schumer also noted that the budget would reduce the deficit by almost $3 trillion over 10 years.
