NY State Senate & Assembly Scratch Saturday Sessions, Will Return Sunday For Budget Votes

State lawmakers are getting an extra day away from Albany courtesy of the slow pace of budget negotiations.

Because so few budget bills have been printed, the Senate and Assembly have cancelled their plans to hold session Saturday afternoon and have re-scheduled them for Sunday. The Senate is expected to gavel in at 3 p.m. Sunday and the Assembly is planning to get started around 4 p.m.

The delay means lawmakers will almost certainly be in Albany on Monday to continue voting and may, depending how quickly the final negotiations conclude, have to return to the Capitol  later in the week – after first two days of Passover -  to complete their budget work.
