Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On The Governor's Executive Budget

ALBANY – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today released the following statement in response to the unveiling of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's budget proposal:

“Our state is facing significant fiscal challenges that require tough choices. To help close the budget deficit, our office will leave no stone unturned in rooting out fraud, corruption, and waste in government, so that we can recover more money stolen from the taxpayers and hold accountable individuals who betray the public trust. I would like to thank Governor Cuomo for supporting the Attorney General’s Office in our efforts to meet these goals. And I look forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature to restore the public’s faith in government and our economic institutions, so that all New Yorkers can be confident they will get a fair shake in these tough times.”
