Cuomo blocks five-year capital plan proposal for SUNY & CUNY

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has again vetoed legislation that would have likely made more capital funding available for the stateís public colleges.

The proposal would have required the governor to include five-year capital plans for the state and city university systems in his budget proposal, which the bill memorandum argues would ensure the college facilities would receive the funding they need. The legislation was shot down by Cuomo in 2015 and 2017.

The governorís veto message was not immediately available on Friday evening, but in 2017 he explained that his opposition stemmed from the financial burden of the legislation.

The state last adopted a five-year capital plan for the higher education system in the 2008-2009 budget, which included a $550 million maintenance appropriation for SUNY and $284.2 million for CUNY.
