The Empire Center’s Budget Spend-O-Meter project reflects the all funds financial plan disbursements of New York’s state government for the current fiscal year (April 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018). The Spend-O-Meter calculates the amount spent since 12:00 am on April 1, 2017.
The Spend-O-Meter calculates the amount based on the “clock time” of the viewer’s computer. Viewers with incorrect time setting or malfunctioning computer clocks may see inaccurate numbers.
Note: $163 Billion is based on the $162,173,000,000 estimate in the governor’s Executive Budget, adjusted to reflect preliminary reports of spending added during the budget process.
