ALBANY, NY (WRGB) — New York state lawmakers worked late into the night Tuesday voting on state budget bills, with a spending plan passing both the state Assembly and Senate.
The governor is expected to sign it, as she was involved in crafting the agreement from the onset.
The budget is over a full month late — it was originally due on April 1.
Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins had said Monday that she was confident lawmakers could get all these votes done today. Local Democratic state Assemblyman John McDonald mentioned earlier Monday that he expected the biggest debate among both parties would concern changes to bail reform that give judges added discretion.
Local Republican state Assemblyman Chris Tague sent out a statement Monday night calling the budget a "disaster."
