New York budget cuts
City’s public hospitals might see $370-million in cuts
Under Paterson’s proposed budget, the HHC would see its funding slashed by $370 million. The cut would come at a time when more uninsured New Yorkers than ever are using the city’s public hospitals.
Proposed budget cuts will hurt homeless
More than 39,000 people in New York City seek shelter each day. Officials and advocates claim Paterson’s proposed cuts would drastically reduce aid to the homeless.
