Budget Deal Near

Governor David Paterson and legislative leaders announced a tentative budget deal that includes a 4.5% spending increase.

Those seeking a new era of open debate in New York will note that the deal was reached in private and before legislative conference committees met. Details of the budget have yet to be published, but the legislature expects to begin passing the $124 billion spending plan perhaps as early as this weekend.
