This question-and-answer session followed a presentation by New York State Budget Director Robert Megna on the fiscal outlook, and a discussion among Mr. Megna and Institute fiscal policy experts Donald Boyd and Robert Ward. New York’s adopted budget for this year restructures “the basic landscape” of the state’s fiscal future, Budget Director Robert L. Megna told a May 26 Rockefeller Institute forum. At the same time, Megna said, success of the plan depends on implementation of key elements — including a cap on Medicaid spending — that pose lingering challenges for policymakers.
