Lawmakers, Gov. Hochul miss NYS budget deadline

Lawmakers left Albany on Thursday after failing to pass a new budget plan for the fiscal year beginning Friday, April 1.

Over the past two weeks, the Democrat-controlled Legislature and Governor Kathy Hochul have continued to debate hot-button issues like bail reform, state fuel tax suspension, child care, and the nearly $1 billion allocated to the new Buffalo Bills stadium.


“We’re close on a lot of the issues,” state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on Thursday, according to Albany Times-Union.

Lawmakers said they expect to finalize the state budget plan early next week.
