'Framework for an Agreement' Says Skelos

After meeting with Governor Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Silver, Senate Leader Skelos said they have a “framework for an agreement” on a number of issues, including mandate relief for localities, a property tax cap, rent regulations, and SUNY funding.

“Most of those issues, I think, we’re going to resolve very shortly,” Skelos said. When asked for specifics, he said, “We’re working on the details.”

He said same-sex marriage was not discussed at this meeting, but that he expects the session to conclude by tomorrow.
