Albany, N.Y. - Lawmakers are still working to hammer out a state budget ahead of the April 1st deadline. Members of the Legislature are expected to start taking a look at budget bills today.
The governor says negotiations continue on several key issues including bail reform and legalizing gestational surrogacy. He also says the final budget agreement will likely include major cuts to education funding.
Lawmakers are also considering legalizing marijuana and using the revenues to close a pre-coronavirus budget gap caused by medicaid overspending.
