A day ahead of the deadline, New York adopted a $132.5 billion budget, giving Gov. Andrew Cuomo his most significant victory since he took office in January.
Just after midnight Thursday, Mr. Cuomo and lawmakers approved a budget that lowers total spending by about 1%, but counts on billions of dollars in cuts that have yet to be spelled out. It does not contain any major new taxes or borrowing.

Maybe it's a new era for this great state ?

If you are a New Yorker the part about "Cuts that have yet to be spelled out" should concern you.

We'll see if it's a new era. This is the line that caught my eye - "School districts have warned that the cuts could force them to raise property taxes, which are already among the highest in the nation."

Not really. As long as that turd shel silver is alive and in the assembly, and the other NYC-far left democrats are as well, the state is in trouble.

So many things needed to be fixed - and weren't.

Andrew has a huge mess to clean up thanks to Patterson. It will take a while before we start to see the fruits of his labour. I count any victory as a big one because he has so much going against him with renovating the state of New York.

Patterson? Andrew will have to reach back and clean up the mess Mario bequeathed future generations of NY'ers.
