State Legislatures work to finalize budget


ALBANY, N.Y.—State Legislative leaders worked towards finalizing the state budget Friday.

In working towards finalizing the state budget, funding for pre-kindergarten programs has become a sticking point.

Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos emerged from closed door negotiations Friday morning to say that certain participants were concerned only about New York City and May Bill De Blasio when it comes to Pre-K.

Democratic Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver said he's focused on the education of all the state's students and it's "unfortunate" if Skelos has a problem with that.
