September 23, 2009

“I was encouraged that during our public Leaders’ meeting this morning Governor Paterson agreed to my suggestion that our legislative staffs and Lieutenant Governor Ravitch should meet and work together toward identifying real solutions to close the state’s budget deficit. Our Conference’s members and staff have been working all summer long and are prepared to meet today to address this issue.”
