ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York's chief fiscal officer will be discussing challenges facing lawmakers and Governor Andrew Cuomo as they negotiate a state budget.

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli is the featured speaker Tuesday morning at a forum being held at the Times Union newspaper building in suburban Albany.

DiNapoli, a Democrat, will discuss such issues as the state's budget deficit -- estimated at over $4 billion -- and the federal tax overhaul and how it will impact New York.

Those are just two of the major issues Cuomo and the Legislature will wrangle over as they formulate a spending plan that's due by April 1, the start of the state's new fiscal year.

DiNapoli has been comptroller since 2007. He's the sole trustee of the state's more than $200 billion pension fund.
