Debate on New York Ballot Proposal One.
Proposal One on New York’s statewide Nov. 8 ballot would amend the state Constitution to eliminate the existing requirement for state legislators to act on the governor’s annual budget Executive Budget before initiating their own appropriation bills. It would provide for an automatic contingency budget, subject to legislative amendment, whenever a new budget is not enacted before the start of a fiscal year.
