Lupardo Says State will have Budget by Midnight

In Albany, they will have a budget by midnight Monday.

We spoke with State Representative Donna Lupardo, and she told us that the governor has issued a message of necessity, which will allow lawmakers to vote on all budget items Monday evening.

She says in terms of education funding, lawmakers have already included some good things for our area:
"We've already passed the a large component of the education  budget and it includes an almost eleven million dollar increase for Broome County Schools over last year, which is really welcomed news given the many challenges that they're facing," said Lupardo.
 
While the funding part of the education bill has already been passed, the language, or Article 7 portion of it is what lawmakers will finalize in the evening.
