New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Wednesday delivered his State of the State address and budget plan. Included were proposals for using some of bank settlement money for construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
Governor Cuomo unveiled how he would like to spend a one-time windfall of more than $5 billion in bank settlement funds. Here’s where he thinks some of it should go.
“We also propose using $1.2 billion of the settlement funds to protect Thruway toll payers for a year for the next year and to help finance the Tappan Zee Bridge.”
