'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos on the budget agreement and his priorities for the rest of session.

Tim Kremer of the New York State School Boards Association checks in.

Senator Pat Gallivan of Western New York discusses both school aid and his bill on the Scaffold Law.

Governor Andrew Cuomo took a moment to applaud the $22 million Adirondack Club & Resort deal in the Town of Tupper Lake during a conference call on Wednesday. But not everyone is a fan of the deal. Today we will be joined by attorney Bob Glennon of Protect the Adirondacks and Charlie Morrison of the Sierra Club. They are suing the Adirondack Park Agency (which they say has “become a rogue agency”), the DEC and the developer of the Adirondack Club and Resort.
