WOODBURY - Officials say Gov. Andrew Cuomo will release his budget tomorrow and it could mean layoffs for thousands of state workers.

Cuomo has threatened to slash thousands of state jobs to help close the state's $10 billion deficit.

Cuomo is expected to propose laying off about 15,000 workers as well as cutting billions from health care and schools.

Mayor Bloomberg says it can also mean cutting nearly every teacher hired in New York City over the last five years.
