ALBANY - Democratic and Republican state senators agreed to meet Thursday for a special session after Gov. David Paterson threatened to withhold their pay, but the session was quickly adjourned in 10 minutes. "In light of the fact that the governor has still neglected to bring the Assembly into extraordinary session number three with us, I have to move that we not take up any legislative activity today and adjourn the special session," announced Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, ending the session. State Senators were expected to consider several bills dealing with a variety of issues, including same-sex marriage. Now, everything has been put on hold.
