2023 State of the State Report

On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, Governor Kathy Hochul delivered her State of the State address in a jam- packed Assembly Chamber filled with legislators, commissioners, judges from Court of Appeals, and invited guests juxtaposed from just a year ago when she delivered it in a nearly empty Assembly chamber as New York fought the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 public health emergency. While custom to deliver the address on the opening day of the Legislative Session, January 4, 2023, Governor Hochul delayed the address until January 10th. The near hour-long address highlighted a small fraction of the 147 policy proposals that are part of her plan outlined in a 275-page book. The State of the State lays out a plan for policies to, as Governor Hochul put it, “... make New York more affordable, more livable, and safer.”

On a fiscal note, the State of the State recognizes the looming potential for a recession as many economists predict, noting the investments made to the state’s rainy-day fund in last year’s budget. Governor Hochul made a pledge to not raise income taxes this year.

The entire State of the State Book can be viewed here. A sampling of notable proposals is excerpted below by subject from the State of the State speech, book and associated press releases. CHC expects greater detail on these proposals when Governor Hochul releases her executive budget proposal later this month (a date and time has not been announced as of the preparation of this report).
