Cuomo budget tour takes him to Buffalo today

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will visit the Buffalo Museum of Science on Wednesday afternoon.

Cuomo, along with Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, will speak at the Humboldt Parkway facility at 1 p.m.

Cuomo is going around the state talking about the recently passed $156 billion state budget, which includes an increase in school aid of about $1.5 billion, an increase in the minimum wage and a freeze in tuition for SUNY.

For Western New York, the budget allocates funding to turn the Scajaquada Expressway into a low-speed urban boulevard, for the next phase of plans to return vehicular traffic to Main Street in Buffalo and anti-poverty funding for Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Jamestown.
