With only a couple of weeks to go before the state budget is due and Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature have a lot of decisions to make, including how much more to spend on schools and whether to impose new taxes on the wealthy. In an interview with public radio and TV, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie talked to Karen DeWitt about some related items that may or may not be part of the budget, including the public financing of political campaigns and the legalization of recreational marijuana. The deadline is April 1.
