Pataki offered the cuts as a way of grappling with a multibillion dollar budget gap when he included in his budget plan a series of proposals that seek to raise revenue by hiking campground and motor vehicle registration fees, sanctioning increased city and state university tuition, relying on increased sales taxes and Medicaid cuts.
