On Thursday, Feburary 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled his preliminary budget proposal for city fiscal year 2019, which begins July 1. On Friday, February 2, Mara Gay of the Wall Street Journal joined the podcast to break it down, discuss de Blasio's budgeting practices, and look ahead to the key policy and budget issues of the next few months. The budget, which calls for $88.7 billion in spending, will be the topic of hearings and negotiations over the next several months. De Blasio will also have to deal with federal and state budgetary decisions -- and he'll go to Albany on Monday, February 5, to testify at a state legislative budget hearing. We discuss it all on this episode.
