Budget Impasse Turns to Agreement

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

UPDATE: Friday night Governor Cuomo announced an agreement on a $153 billion spending plan for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

Capitol observers this week felt like they were riding on a pendulum inside one of the antique senate clocks.  

More than once it seemed like lawmakers had struck a budget deal, only to have it fall apart a short while later.  Some of the sticking points include Raise the Age, one of the controversial bills inside the state's spending plan.  Rick Karlin of the Times Union and Mike Gormley of Newsday help analyze the week's news at our Reporters Roundtable.

Also, we'll have a preview of a new film about Albany's most famous WWI hero.

Join us this weekend on your local PBS station.
