As budget deals are hammered out in Albany (or not), Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his Cabinet members have been pitching the Executive Budget all around the state.
The Journal News/LoHud Editorial Board will talk all things state budget at noon tomorrow with New York State Thruway Authority Executive Director Tom Madison. It’s going to be a broad discussion, and will include an update on the fast-moving Tappan Zee Bridge replacement plan.
To watch the interview, go to LoHud.com/editorialspotlight; to comment or ask a question, engage the “CoverItLive” feature on the computer screen.
In case you want to know where Madison stands on the issues surrounding the bridge, including persistent calls to incorporate some kind of mass transit option in the project, the Thruway Authority chief makes his views pretty clear in an Op/Ed in Tuesday’s New York Post. Among his comments:
“As it is, demands for Westchester/Rockland mass transit threaten to stall the project … the taxpayers can’t afford the bridge and 64 miles of new transit corridor.”
(That last figure comes from a back-and-forth measure of the Interstate 287 corridor, in case you are wondering.)
Tune in, and pose your questions on the state’s budget plans, and the Tappan Zee Bridge.
