Voters say yes to most school budgets

Listen to this story
It was school budget day in New York State yesterday. Voters from one side of the state to the other had their say on their local district's spending plan for the coming year.

It was a tough year for the schools, with a continuing loss of state education aid, and a new state-imposed limit on property taxes used to fund many of the programs and positions local communities value.

The vast majority of budgets passed in the North Country; most including significant cuts in teachers and programs. Martha Foley talked with Brian Mann for a survey of the regional results.
