Aspects of governor's budget raise concerns



The state’s largest environmental lobbyist, the Adirondack Council, was glad to see the $19 million addition to the Environmental Protection Fund, especially after Cuomo vetoed a plan from legislators to add $10 million to the fund last session.

Council spokesman John Sheehan said the governor indicated then he would make the adjustment in the 2013 executive budget.

“We are pleased to see that he not only lived up to his word, but increased the total amount going to the EPF beyond what the vetoed bill would have provided,” Sheehan said in a statement.
