Governor Andrew Cuomo  announced on Monday that the 2015-16 Executive Budget will be released and presented together with the 2015 State of the State Address.

The 2015 New York State of Opportunity Agenda will be presented by Governor Cuomo on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany. WXXI Radio & TV will carry the address live.

Cuomo’s office says the January 21st release of the combined State of the State and Executive Budget will expedite the process of legislative budget hearings, giving the Executive and Legislature additional time ahead of the March 31st deadline.

Cuomo was originally set to give his State of the State address last week, but postponed it because of the death of his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo.

The budget presentation was scheduled for later this month.
