  • Rating: NR
As New York operates with no budget, Budget Director Robert Megna says the state will run out of money in June if a deal isn't in place. Lawmakers pass emergency budget extenders to keep the state afloat. Also, the proposed tax on sugary drinks is pronounced D.O.A. by many lawmakers, but State Health Commissioner Richard Daines begs to differ. Plus, the Tea Party Express stops in Upstate New York.
