Governor Cuomo says it'll be up to the federal government to help New York fix its budget crunch.

The Empire State is currently billions of dollars in the red, in part due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The governor released two budget proposals Tuesday, with one calling for education spending to be cut and taxes to increase while the other would lower taxes on the middle class and help businesses. He says the fiscal plan that ends up being put in place will depend on how much money the state gets from the federal government.
