Rensselaer, NY, Jun 26, 2009 — State Senate leaders are still trying to work out a power-sharing deal. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking. Next Wednesday, July 1, some laws expire unless the Senate comes to an agreement and extends the measures. The Senate is scheduled to meet today at noon, and Gov. David Paterson has already planned to call the chamber into session tomorrow afternoon and again on Sunday evening if the squabbling lawmakers don't get their work done. Martha Foley spoke with Adirondack Bureau Chief Brian Mann about what's at stake, and where North Country Senators fit into the mix.
(03/12/2014) Hundreds of prison guards, many from the North Country, rallied yesterday outside the Capitol in Albany, demanding that Gov. Andrew Cuomo cancel a plan to mothball four state prisons in July.
