Governor David Patterson says he will seek billions of dollars in cuts to Medicaid as well as reductions to school aid to combat New York Stateís budgetary woes. In an interview with the New York Times, Patterson described the cuts as ìdrastic.î There was no word on if the budget cuts would directly affect funding of Cornellís state schools or would cut tuition aid for new Yorkers. Cornell has already taken proactive steps to cut spending in response to the nationwide economic recession. The 2009 budget for New York State has a 1.5 billion dollar budgetary gap. Governor Patterson has called lawmakers back for an emergency session starting on November 18th to figure out funding to close the gap for this fiscal year. The news, however, only gets worse: the budget for the next fiscal year will need to deal with a 12.5 Billion dollar deficit.
