On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo released his $168.2 billion executive budget for the next fiscal year. Citizens Budget Commission's Director of State Studies, Dave Friedfel, returns to the podcast to discuss how the governor has proposed closing a $4.4 billion budget gap, how major items like school aid and Medicaid are going to be funded and what proposals are being offered to deal with two issues on everyone’s minds: funding the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the drastic reduction of the state and local tax deduction (SALT). 

Listen to the conversation and let us know what you think: Ben Max of GG (@TweetBenMax), Maria Doulis of CBC (@MariaDoulis), and guest Dave Friedfel (@davefriedfel). Listen below or download wherever you get your podcasts!
