This discussion followed a presentation by Mr. Megna on New York State's budget outlook. 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.
