Budget extender set to expire Monday, affecting state employee paychecks

Another budget extender will have to pass by Monday – or state employee paychecks could be affected.

Last week, the legislature and Governor Hochul passed their first extender.
However, it expires on Monday, the 10th.
Lawmakers and the governor still have to reach a final deal.
When the first extender was proposed, the governor said she had been negotiating in good faith – but there is more work to be done before an agreement is reached.
