The State Budget & The Tug Hill Commission (Updated)
Democrats and Republicans applauded Governor Cuomo's promise to cut spending.
UPDATE: Jeffrey Gordon, a Division of Budget spokesman, said of the decision to eliminate funding for the Tug Hill Commission without having it go through the SAGE commission:
"This was proposed as a way to achieve immediate savings. State agencies will make every effort to help the transition of the Tug Hill communities to the normal level of services provided across the State. This includes provision of land use planning and training through the Department of State's existing Local Government Services program."
