New York State's 2013-2014 budget briefing book is now available.

"This year has been one of tremendous progress but one also fraught with great challenges," said state budget Director Bob Megna in his message in the briefing book. "The fiscal reforms enacted over the past two years have moved New York past the era of perpetual budget crisis and bolstered confidence in State government."

The entire briefing book, which offers some of the budget's highlights, is available below.

"This challenge is daunting, but we have proven we can meet it. Under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, we have built credibility, we have balanced the budget, we have passed on-time budgets, and the public trust has been restored. New York is, indeed, on the rise," said Megna in closing.
