AIM funding restored in Assembly budget

ALBANY – State AIM funding – Aid and Incentives for Municipalities – has been restored in the Assembly’s version of the 2019-20 budget.

Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson (D, Newburgh) said that is one of two important funding sources placed back in the spending plan.

“Ninety-percent of all the towns in the state were losing their AIM funding and this has been restored,” Jacobson said. “All the towns in my district had lost their AIM funding and now it is being restored. Also very important, the extreme weather repaving program has been restored. If there is a year that we ever needed more money for paving roads due to the extreme weather changes, it’s this year.”

The Senate has to adopt the budget that must be signed by the governor by the end of the month, a deadline not always met.
