MURRAY ANNOUNCES RECORD SCHOOL AID, RESTORATION OF LIBRARY AID IN BUDGET DEAL

A Statement from Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue) on passage of the 2018-19 NYS Budget

“Although a largely closed-door and secretive process, we were able to secure a record amount of school aid for our students – over $26 billion.

“Not only were we able to avoid the governor’s disastrous cuts to local libraries, we managed to increase library aid by $1 million more than last year.

“I’m pleased that we are moving education forward on Long Island and have secured funding to cultivate a robust environment for our teachers, parents, students and community members.”
