New York State is facing a $63 billion budget deficit which has been exacerbated by the CCP virus pandemic.

Because of this deficit, Judges, legislators, and executive branch officials are not getting pay raises any time soon. According to a report, the money will be needed to stop the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

“It argues that significant budget cuts might be necessary at the state executive level.  Also, substantial additional state monies will be needed for things such as providing face masks, virus tracking, contact tracing, enforcement efforts, and distribution of the hoped for new pandemic vaccine.

Due to these reasons the commission doesn’t recommend salary increases for the next four years for judges, legislators, and executive branch officials.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo was set to get a $25,000 raise in January, which would have made him the highest-paid governor in the United States, but he turned it down today.
