Paterson warns of late NY budget

ALBANY - (AP) - Gov. David Paterson is warning that NewYork's budget is likely to miss the April 1 deadline.

He says there is just too much to do and too little negotiationto get it done with just two weeks left before the 2010-11 fiscalyear begins. He said the budget may be settled by the end of April.

But the Democratic governor says he can't tell how likely theAssembly and Senate are to change his proposed budget because hehas yet to receive basic budget proposals from them.

Senate and Assembly leaders didn't immediately comment.

The leaders could try to negotiate a budget proposal withoutPaterson, but they would have to first reject his proposal.Paterson submitted a balanced budget proposal in January thatincluded some spending cuts.
