$103.3 billion is the total amount of spending authorized by the City Council for Fiscal Year 2022. While officials call it a budget of $98.3 billion, the larger figure reflects the full amount to be expended, including $6 billion available from the prior year due to higher than expected tax receipts and federal aid. New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer joined the show to discuss the adopted budget, which is the last under Mayor Bill de Blasio and this City Council, as well as Stringer, and the city's current and long-term fiscal picture.
