NY Senate Budget Analysis of DFR

The NY Senate Republicans have released their analysis of Governor Cuomo’s budget, including the proposal to merge the Insurance Department, the Banking Department and portions of the Consumer Protection Board. In the document they conclude that there are no savings to be achieved and a cost of $6-$9 million primarily in consolidation expenses. The document doesn’t contain a narrative discussion of the merits of the proposal - it merely states the conclusions on costs.
