Cuomo: Legislative bills get in the way

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — But days later, as critical Senate Republican opposition became clear, Cuomo insisted he simply wanted to codify existing abortion protections under the Roe v. Wade federal court decision. In Wednesday's "Capitol Pressroom" interview, he didn't mention abortion rights in referencing his women's rights proposal.

Although he blamed stubborn legislators as the reason for keeping his bills private, legislators have been clamoring for many of these bills so they can get something done.

"What did we do for the budget?" said Assembly Republican leader Brian Kolb. He noted the governor released his budget bills, the majority and minority conferences in both houses later publicly released their budget resolutions, and a budget was passed on time.

"That worked," Kolb said. "It's about stimulating discussion and ideas."

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
