Legislative session ends, but Assembly will return

Joshua Solomon reports in the Times Union that the legislative session may have seemed to end on June 10, but assembly members, not senators, are expected back in the “near future” to finish work, according to spokespersons for Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie. Solomon says Republican lawmakers walking down the hall in the state Capitol were overheard chatting about returning in “two weeks.” Assembly spokespersons did not give a definite date. The legislative session was scheduled to conclude on June 8, but lasted two more days, with more work, at least by the Assembly, to be done. The Assembly will discuss a casino deal with the Seneca Nation, and an amended version of a “wrongful conviction” bill, when they return. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
