Senate Passes Education Budget Bill
June 28th, 2010

The Senate Democrats were able to pull together their conference to pass the education, labor and family assistance piece of their budget deal with the Assembly. All Republicans voted against the bill.

Sen. Bill Stachowski was the last hold-out. He wants to see Gov. David Paterson’s plan to allow SUNY and CUNY to raise their tuition by a certain percentage each year. He appeared with Senate Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson before the vote to say that by supporting this budget bill he would give Sampson the leverage he needed to push the Assembly to support the resolution.

The Assembly already approved all of the components of the two-way budget deal.
