NYC and NYS Face “Wide” Budget Gaps Even with Federal Aid

The Citizens Budget Commission warned Tuesday that federal aid in and of itself won’t close the massive budget deficits faced by New York City and New York State.

The state and city “have budget gaps so wide and face risks so substantial that even with considerable additional federal aid the state and city still will have to implement significant actions to stabilize their finances in the long run,” the CBC reported.
aken together, state and city budget gaps total $73.3 billion over four years. If federal aid ultimately relieves the same portion of these gaps as in the Great Recession, the state and city still will have to implement gap-closing actions totaling $57 billion.

“Federal aid may well be greater this time, but is unlikely to solve the whole problem,” according to the CBC. “State and city leaders should act with urgency to develop and implement credible fiscal stability plans.”
