New York governor backs minimum wage boost

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo talks to attendees after his 2013-14 Executive Budget address on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, in Albany, N.Y. The $137 billion state budget that Cuomo proposed Tuesday would increase spending about 2 percent without tax increases, but New Yorkers would feel some fee hikes. Cuomo's budget proposal to the Legislature provides 4.4 percent more aid to schools and would fund his proposal to improve instruction, including longer school days and school years. State aid to municipalities outside New York City wouldn't increase at a time when many counties and smaller local governments worry about insolvency amid rising costs and shrinking tax bases.
