State Budget Negotiations Continue
With the State Budget deadline fast approaching, negotiations among state legislative leaders and the Governor continue in stops and starts, with various news outlets reporting progress and roadblocks.
Several proposals supported by NYSASBO were included in the Assembly and Senate's one-house budget proposals that we hope will make it into a final budget. The use of PYA's to pay down state aid recoveries/penalties, increasing school lunch reimbursement from 6 to 25 cents per meal for districts that purchase 25% of food from state farmers, etc., excluding local share of BOCES Capital Project costs from tax cap and increasing salary cap for hiring retired police officers as SRO's.
