NY lawmakers get a winter break this week
ALBANY New York lawmakers get a break from session this week after about a month of work.
The state Legislature is not scheduled to go into session until next week. Lawmakers have been in a session at the Capitol in Albany for two or three days a week since Jan. 13. They also convened on Jan. 8 to hear Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address.
Legislative sessions in Albany typically begin slowly then pick up steam as the deadline for adopting a new budget approaches on April 1.
Lawmakers are due back in session Tuesday, Feb. 25.
