Cuomo’s Bill Cleared the Senate and Split the Republicans

ALBANY—One notable detail about the results of the State Senate’s debate on Andrew Cuomo’s government consolidation bill late yesterday was the final vote tally: the measure passed 46-16.
Several Republicans–including Minority Leader Dean Skelos–voted against the legislation. It has been touted as a way to lower property taxes, particularly in suburban areas.
“We obviously have supported efforts to reduce property taxes, but we had a number of concerns about this bill including that fire districts were not exempted, that library districts were not exempted and he wanted to see a detailed cost-benefit analysis by the state comptroller to give an idea by how much money could be saved by this,” said Skelos spokesman Scott Reif.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
