This project features the insights of 11 policy experts deeply engaged in the study and analysis of the major issues facing our state today: budget and tax policy, criminal justice, education, health, energy, transportation, housing, public employment, government accountability and—capping it off—the laws by which we choose the elected officials to make decisions in these areas.

The Next New York ultimately focuses on the future—on what needs to be done, and what needs to change, to allow the Empire State to move forward again.
