Governor Kathy Hochul will give her second New York State Budget Address in a live broadcast on Wednesday, February 1 at noon. It is expected to last approximately one hour and will air and livestream on THIRTEEN. The speech from the state capitol in Albany will come the day after Hochul joins President Biden in New York City to highlight federal investment in the Hudson Tunnel Project that will connect New York City and New Jersey.

What she proposes on February 1 is a starting point for the state budget, and a delayed one at that (the State Budget Address in 2022 took place on January 18). Spectrum News reported that the New York State budget process was stalled this year because the Senate Judiciary Committee had rejected Hochul’s nominee for New York’s top judge position, Justice Hector LaSalle. Following her speech will be two months of negotiations with the State Senate and Assembly.

Chris McKenna reported what to expect in the Budget Address in an article on January 31, beginning with Hochul’s determination to double the pace of housing construction in New York. In an article on January 30, The Gothamist focused on Hochl’s plan to build 800,000 new homes statewide over the next 10 years, and local resistance to that plan.

On January 10, 2023, THIRTEEN broadcast Hochul’s State of the State address. The priorities for “Achieving the New York Dream” are highlighted on the governor’s State of the State page.
