It is reassuring in these difficult and turbulent times to know Liz is working on the weekend, keeping a watchful eye on our diligent if somewhat mercurial lawmakers.....
Seems the leadership doesn't like the Governor pushing them around and Senator Sampson and Speaker Silver want to leave their imprint on the 2010 spending plan.
While the Governor's pushing is in many ways a good thing, Mr. Paterson's extender ultimatum misses key revenues outlined in his original proposal and engages in dangerous de facto borrowing against the pension fund.
I know Mr. Sampson was working today with his caucus and the Legislature is drafting its own bills for consideration on Monday. Either way, its time to git'er done!
