Following a private meeting with Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos says he expects a preliminary agreement on the state budget by Friday afternoon. Skelos, a Republican, offered few details, but was adamant that there would not be an extension of the millionaire's tax in the spending plan.
"It's off the table, that's gone," said Skelos. "It's done, it's dead, it's not going to happen."
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a Democrat, was also at the meeting.
Silver was tight lipped, saying only that he is "cautiously optimistic". Governor Cuomo declined to comment, though the governor has threatened that he'll force the legislature to pass his entire budget in an emergency spending measure, if the deadline is missed.
