Sheldon Silver Isn’t in a Hurry

Sheldon Silver emerged from the conference room behind the Assembly chambers with some cryptic answers for the pack of reporters who were waiting for him.

When asked about congestion pricing, an idea Michael Bloomberg is pushing with some urgency, Silver sounded typically unhurried. “We’re going to conference
it,” he said. “We’re going to talk about it.”

Silver also said that a closely watched gay marriage bill may not even make it to the floor of the
Assembly for a vote. “We’ve conferenced it,” he said. “And it is beginning to move in judiciary. It’s on the judiciary calendar today and we’ll take a further look as to where the votes are.”
