NY Assembly proposes new budget

THE BRONX - The state Assembly released its own budget Wednesday.

The proposed state budget does not include many of Gov. David Paterson's proposed cuts. Under the proposal, a $600 million cut to schools is not included as well as several cuts to universities, parks and hospitals.

Funding for the budget restorations will come from many sources including a dollar tax on cigarettes.
