ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Here are some highlights of the proposed 2014-15 New York state budget negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders:
- Total proposal: $138 billion, plus $5 billion in off-budget one-time federal aid.
- Total growth held under 2 percent.
- A $1.1 billion, or 5.3 percent, increase in education aid, with high-needs districts getting almost 70 percent of the hike.
- Allocations of $340 million for universal pre-K during each of the next two years, with $300 million for New York City and $40 million for the rest of the state.
- A $2 billion bond act pending approval by voters in November that would allow borrowing to fund classroom computers and technology as well as building pre-K classrooms.
- Changes in implementation of the Common Core curriculum learning standards in English and math that will keep test scores off the transcripts of students in third through eighth grades through 2018.
