Paterson: Weekend Session! A Court Order! No Member Items!

ALBANY—David Paterson said he is calling an extraordinary session on both days this weekend, and, in what is becoming a daily event, held a raging press conference in the Red Room where he said he has issued a memo to halt the payment of member items from the still-hobbled State Senate and that he will seek a court order compelling senators to come into the chamber together.
Noting that neither bi-furcated session of recent days has had a quorum of 32 members (no quorum was called), Paterson today said that “technically” the Senate has not been in session.
He also poured water on the progress of negotiations in the chamber.
