With the state's finances at a crisis point, it is time for bold new ideas that will not only get us through these difficult times, but return the State of New York to greatness.
The State University of New York is in the midst of a statewide strategic plan, the goal of which is to revitalize New York's economy while creating a better quality of life in every community. This plan, which will be completed next month, will serve as SUNY's roadmap. But the Empowerment Act will be the enabling legislation for our ambitious vision.
The legislation removes tuition from the state budget, allowing SUNY to expand enrollment and increase access to excellent education opportunities.
