Paterson to Take 10 Percent Pay Cut
Thursday, March 05, 2009
New York, NY —
With New York facing a $14 billion budget deficit, Governor Paterson says he'll take a ten percent pay cut. The governor, in Buffalo to meet with economic development and business officials, told reporters he would "symbolically make the gesture for the state," but he doesn't want to ask anyone else to do the same. No word yet from Paterson's fellow Democrats, Assembly Speaker Sheldon SIlver and Senate leader Malcolm Smith, as to whether they'll follow suit. A spokesman for Republican Senate minority leader Dean Skelos says Republicans are more focused on budget negotations; they released their budget proposal today. Only Assembly minority leader James Tedisco says he'll follow Paterson's lead and take a pay cut.
