It’s just over a week until the state budget is due, and there’s no resolution on an array of proposed new taxes and spending proposals, as well as several unrelated items that are tied to the budget.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been holding private leaders meetings on the budget at the executive mansion.
“This week is about getting a state budget done,” Cuomo said, “which is one of the most serious state budgets we’ve had to deal with.”
But he took a day off to give several storm briefings in New York City and its suburbs, where more than a foot of snow was expected.
