STATEMENT BY SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DEAN SKELOS

The whole budget process has been a failure of leadership by the Governor, Senator Sampson and Speaker Silver.  They had no problem passing bills to increase spending, but now they are going home without passing a bill to pay for it.  This is Democrat-controlled government at its worst. This disastrous budget was negotiated by the Democrats behind closed doors, they refused to negotiate in public or in a bipartisan manner, they passed it in piecemeal fashion and now they are leaving without finishing the job.
