Gov. Andrew Cuomo is convening a meeting of his cabinet today at 11:30 a.m. with about a week before the state’s deadline to get an on-time budget.
The fiscal year starts April 1, and lawmakers are poised to have a deal by next Monday, March 18, in order to have a three-day waiting period for bills to be approved by March 21. The Legislature is scheduled to start its spring break on March 21.
