Following the passage of a $132.5 billion budget for the current fiscal year, the Empire Center has begun documenting the rate of spending with its spend-O-meter.
Based on the budget, according to the Empire Center, the state spends $4,201 a second, $363,013,699 per day and $11,041,666,666 in a month.
E.J. McMahon of the Empire Center said, "Under this year's budget, our state government will spend more every hour than 200 typical New York families earn in a year."
