New York budget deal’s big winner: Speaker Carl Heastie - NY Daily News

       He was in Watertown briefly last year, but he is being called the big winner in the budget process in Albany....Former WDT scribe Ken Lovett who now is a big wig for the NYDN declares Speaker Carl Heastie kicked butt in his first real budget go around.  Mr. Heastie took over from defrocked Speaker Sheldon Silver and the new boss gets credit for paying more attention to his Members and actually visiting upstate districts.

Didn't Cuomo and the Senate team up together to limit Heastie's power greatly? Sounds like Heastie lost big time, otherwise he would be in the drivers seat completely.
