Seward Continues Opposition To Incomplete Budget Extenders

April 20, 2010

ALBANY, 04/19/10 - State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I) votes against emergency budget extenders and calls on his senate colleagues to begin bipartisan, public budget conference committees as required by law.

Seward says the emergency budget extender bill is incomplete, failing to authorize payment for already approved construction projects.  In turn, contractors are being forced to lay off workers, sending individuals to the unemployment line and threatening vital infrastructure improvements.
