ALBANY, N.Y. — New York lawmakers are working toward a vote on a new state budget.
Members of the Senate and Assembly hope to pass a new spending plan before a new fiscal year begins Monday.
But first they'll work Wednesday to resolve debates over the details of several proposals, including ones to impose new vehicle tolls in Manhattan and tax luxury second homes there.
In his $175 billion budget proposal, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo also included the elimination of cash bail for criminal defendants and a permanent extension of the existing 2 percent cap on local property tax increases.
A proposal to legalize recreational marijuana isn't expected to be included in the budget, but lawmakers say they expect to consider that issue before the Legislature adjourns in June.
