Calibrated to the Governor’s estimate of $132.5 billion in “all funds” spending under the enacted budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year, the Empire Center’s “Spend-O-Meter” spins at the following rates:
$4,201 per second
$363,013,699 per day
$2,548,076,923 per week
$11,041,666,666 per month
“Under this year’s budget, our state government will spend more every hour than 200 typical New York families earn in a year,” said E.J. McMahon of the Empire Center.
