New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo will outline his legislative priorities Tuesday afternoon during a speech that will include his state of the state and budget message. Several education groups have called for state aid to total between $2 billion and $2.5 billion in the fiscal year that begins April 1. 

The executive director of the New York State School Boards Association, Tim Kremer, favors $2.2 billion, with $1.4 billion of that funding set aside for foundation aid. Kremer spoke with WAMC’s Brian Shields Monday.

You can hear Cuomo’s address at 2 p.m. Tuesday on WAMC and wamc.org.
