ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to address New York lawmakers in mid-January with proposals for 2016 initiatives and a budget for the fiscal year that starts in April.

The speech Jan. 13 will combine the governor’s state of the state address with his executive budget presentation. Traditionally governors’ budget proposals follow the address by weeks.

Cuomo says Monday it makes little sense to lay out a vision and let everyone wait weeks to learn the plan to pay for it.

He says that’s in line with his administration’s approach to re-examine everything in state government, keep what works and fix what doesn’t.
