They don't get much done during the day, but when the Governor makes them work all night....They complain about that too.
Meet the NY State Legislature which early Thursday passed an array of bills they hadn't read.....The Governor know if you create a frenzy...get people antsy and wanting to go home...then stick a bill in front of them, they will cry uncle.
That's why juries rush to verdicts on Friday afternoons.
Lawmakers say no more all nights, but they will be doing it again next year. These folks are out of shape...In the good old days the Legislature did all nights all the time...not in the chamber but in the bars lining State and Pearl Streets in downtown Albany.
