NY Lawmakers Want Budget Vote; Cuomo Says There's No Rush

NY Lawmakers Want Budget Vote; Cuomo Says There's No Rush

After missing a Saturday deadline in part due to disagreement over proposed raise the age legislation, ny legislators signed bills submitted by Gov. Andrew Cuomo Monday to approve a fiscal year 2018 State Budget Extender and avoid a state government shut-down.

Politico reports (h/t The Real Deal) that Cuomo, lawmakers and real estate industry folk came to an agreement on Tuesday, and the state legislature will now vote on the proposal in the coming days.

Republican Senate Leader John Flanagan's spokesman said senators are discussing the proposed compromise but there's now no final agreement.

Another provision - and perhaps the most contested in stalled negotiations - would end the automatic prosecution and incarceration of 16- and 17-year-old offenders as adults.

Senate Republicans, bought and paid for by their charter masters, are holding the state's education budget hostage so they can take money that should be going to neighborhood public schools around the state and send it to charters in New York City.

Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Rockaway Beach) said the extender has "some bright spots", including, "increased funding for home health care aides and crucial upgrades to I878."The I-878 is the Nassau Expressway".

For weeks, Cuomo has stated his preference for a budget that would allow him to tinker with it throughout the year, controlling disbursements without legislative approval.

"Sometimes it feels like we get to the five yard line and then we get pushed back a little bit", said Sen. "But there's no great rush at this point to get anything done because in people's lives, all the government operations are continuing".

" What you've seen lately in the news is real", Schneider said Wednesday morning on " Brock and Salk ", via The Seattle Times. The Patriots don't have a first-round pick this year, but that could change depending on what happens with Butler.

The budget extender gives lawmakers until May 31 - an extra two months - to agree on the final budget.

It would be an ambitious timetable, but scheduling miracles do seem to materialize many times around adoption of the state budget.

How and when the Senate might return for a vote is up to their leader John Flanagan, said Heastie.

The Legislature earlier this week OK'd an emergency spending bill to keep the government operating until the end of May.

"It's important that we not put our financial feet in cement", Cuomo said.

In his Southern Tier district, there are two-key issues - school aid and the budget for road and bridge work - and neither has been resolved.

The compromise now floating about Albany waiting for a final deal would leave the decisions up to local experts, such as social workers, to decide on a case-by-case basis, the official said.

With U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara deposed and ethics reforms completely off the table, Cuomo has leaked details of supposed "deals" (like the noxious 421-a rumor, which first appeared in Politico Pro, cited to "sources close to the negotiations") to media outlets, sending Democrats into a frenzy of dissent.
