Quinn and the Bright Side of Albany

Council Speaker Christine Quinn may be on the verge of an unusual accomplishment: getting something passed through both houses of the legislature in Albany.

After leading the City Council in voting on a home rule message in support of a bill to create a tax break for certain businesses, she said she expected the Assembly to vote on the bill today, and noted that the Senate Majority Leader has already spoken approvingly of the measure.

In the clip, she expresses optimism about its prospects of moving through war-torn Albany, and about another initiative to create a rainy day fund for the city.
