New York Legislature Due Back For Possible Budget Vote
ALBANY, N.Y. (WCBS 880/AP) — The budget battle continues in New York as the state Legislature gets ready to return to session Tuesday. The budget was originally due April 1.
A deal with Paterson remained elusive Monday.
There does, however, appear to be a deal to remove a new tax from the budget bills already approved. The tax was to hit wealthy hedge fund managers. But officials now fear it would drive them and their big pay checks to Connecticut.
