ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants New York state to spend another $125 billion on infrastructure improvement projects over the next five years.

The Democrat announced May 8 that his proposal would be the next phase in his program to rebuild New York and create thousands of middle-class jobs.

Cuomo said the $125 billion in spending would include state and federal funding along with leveraging private-sector capital to improve roads, bridges and mass transit systems, and provide more affordable housing and clean water infrastructure.

New York state is in the midst of a $100 billion infrastructure initiative that includes ongoing upgrades for the New York City subway system.
