Nick Reisman reports at New York State of Politics that lawmakers in Albany passed, and Gov. Kathy Hochul signed into law, a second extension to the April 1 budget deadline. The leaders of the Senate and Assembly and governor now have until April 17 to strike a deal on the budget. The main impasse is whether or not to make changes to the state's bail law, where those considered innocent until proven guilty are held by the state. Passing the extension included a measure to keep paychecks coming to the state's 83,000 workers. Read more about this story at New York State of Politics.
