Andrew Cuomo is serving his third term as New York State’s governor.

ALBANY – Governor Cuomo called the state’s 2020-21 budget, passed at 3 a.m. yesterday, “extraordinary,” according to the press statement from his office.

“I understand we’re all consumed with the coronavirus situation but we have to be able to walk and chew gum,” the governor said after the passage, adding “the budget was difficult because the state has no money, … and we came up with a somewhat novel budget that actually is calibrated to future revenues or losses. … When we see how much revenue the state makes, how fast the economy comes back, what the expenses are, we’ll calibrate accordingly.”

Here are the highlights issued by the Governor’s Office:
