“It is the purpose of the legislature to recognize that each individual citizen and taxpayer of the state has an interest in the proper disposition of all state funds and properties.  Whenever this interest is or may be threatened by an illegal or unconstitutional act of a state officer or employee, the need for relief is so urgent that any citizen-taxpayer should have and hereafter does have a right to seek the remedies provided for herein.”  State Finance Law, §123: "Legislative purpose"

“A budget is a statement of the financial position of the government, for a definite period of time, based upon an estimate of proposed expenditures and anticipated revenues…The method by which public budgets are prepared is governed by the State Constitution and the applicable State statutes.  The requirements contained in those documents are not particularly burdensome and permit the executive and the legislative officials considerable freedom of action in implementing governmental operations and programs and providing for the revenues to fund them.  The legal requirements they contain, however, are grounded in the general principles of fiscal responsibility and the accountability that underpins the regulation of all public conduct and they must be followed.”
Korn v. Gulotta, 72 N.Y.2d 363, 372-373 (1988), underlining added
