NEW YORK NOW - Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, D-Bronx, says members of his chamber are prepared to return to Albany in the coming weeks to prevent major cuts to education, local governments, and hospitals that could be proposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo without federal aid. Heastie, in an interview with reporters at the state Capitol Thursday, said if Cuomo followed through on his warning to cut spending by 20%, the Assembly would “look to respond.”
“I think these cuts are unacceptable, and I think you would see the Legislature look to respond,” Heastie said.
