ALBANY -- On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo unveils his 2014 state budget plan.
But he's not sticking around long to sell it, as he heads to Los Angeles just two days later for a fundraiser whose hosts include insiders from the film industry, a group that has benefited greatly from the hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks the state has provided for films and tv shows shot in New York.
The New York Daily News reported this afternoon that couples who give $50,000 at the "intimate" California event will earn the title of "chair.'' Word of the fundraiser comes a day after the New York Public Interest Research Group said 45 percent of all money Cuomo's campaign account has taken in since he became governor has come from donors giving $40,000 or more apiece.
Cuomo reported this week his re-election account has $33.3 million on hand.
