statement from senate republican leader rob ortt

After blowing through the budget deadline, Albany Democrats today pushed through a temporary extender until April 10. The Senate and Assembly Democrats still can’t decide how much they will tax hardworking New Yorkers and they can’t agree that they need to make changes to the disastrous bail laws that they have implemented. As a result, negotiations will now be forced to continue in the midst of the Passover and Easter holidays.

While today’s budget extender is necessary to ensure hardworking state workers get their paychecks this week, it is disappointing that the Legislature has failed to enact an on-time budget that lowers costs and keeps New Yorkers safe.
