What’s Happening In Albany?

It is a question I am asked often. Too often I have to answer in vague terms wrapped in qualifying terms.

A week or so after the state budget is constitutionally mandated to be enacted nothing much is happening. No budget, and no effort to complete it – at least publicly. If you follow this blog you will have already enjoyed a number of linked articles describing New York’s regression. Jacob Gershman has written a particularly good one, and Times has their take.

The twenty-first century is the information age – everywhere except Albany. In your state capitol the “bossism” and back-room meeting of the nineteenth century are the norm.
