Local Taxes in New York State

Easing the Burden

December 06, 2007

In order to promote fiscal reform, the Citizens Budget Commission (CBC) convened three separate agenda-setting conferences for key stakeholders in the state budget process in 2007. Each session focused on one aspect of fiscal reform with a goal of identifying specific changes for the coming budget cycle. The expectation is that the priority measures can begin to be implemented in the course of adopting the fiscal year 2008-09 budget. This presentation is from the third session, which was held at the Rockefeller Institute of Government in Albany on December 6.
