Here we go! Snow for rural NY and…

Governor Patterson will release his proposal this afternoon to balance the budget.  Patterson is saying it’s going to hurt.   Meanwhile, now that we are at the 1/2 year mark for our States’ fiscal year,  a deficit of over four billion dollars is currently projected for the State by the Comptroller although the legislature thinks it’s really only half of that.   In addition, today there will be a verdict in the case against State Senator Monserrate, which may  impact the NYS Senate Democratic majority.  Remember that cuts proposed to programs passed by the legislature need their approval.  Let’s see what happens tomorrow!  (and I heard the Southern Tier and Western NY gets seven inches by the weekend, ready or not)
