NYS Budget is passed –

Without debate, the Senate passed their budget spending plans along party lines August 3.  If there is no increase in the federal Medicaid funding, look for across the board cuts in State programs.  That means the preservation program would be subject to an additional across the board cut.  The NYTimes reports that the Senate passed a bill requiring prisoners be counted as residents of their address prior to incarceration, an action that will have a big impact in Rural NY as lines are redrawn.
