Albany, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver announces the passage of the New York State budget Thursday.
The agreement includes increases for state and municipal transportation projects, including a $75 million increase from the executive's budget for CHIPS and Funding for Roads.
Silver said this is a 21 percent increase from last year's budget and will help local governments improve infrastructure.
Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R- 131st District) said something he is not pleased with is the cut to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities.
"The fact that we are making a $90 million cut to the developmentally disabled in the state is unacceptable and should have never been a part of this agreement," Kolb said.
The budget now moves on to the governor's office.
The deadline is Monday.
