State Senate President Pro Tempore Malcolm Smith wants some appreciation for his conference for their role in preventing a government shutdown yesterday.
The Majority Democrats have again answered the call and stepped up to provide leadership when it is most necessary. We are pleased that we did the responsible thing by passing the budget extender.

We are committed to keeping the government up and running, and ready to effectively serve the citizens of New York.”
