So the bridge's name would switch from "The Governor Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Bridge" to "The Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge".

It's quiet in the chambers but on Wednesday, it will be a much different story as Governor Andrew Cuomo has called lawmakers back for a special session. Jeff Klein, leader of the Senate's Independent Democratic Conference, said after emerging from a meeting with Cuomo.

"Governor Cuomo is doing what he does best, passing the buck on to hardworking NY families by proposing new taxes", Collins said in a statement issued by his office Monday.

"I think it's something that could be dealt with and I think you have to have leverage to deal with it and if you give away the main piece that the New York City crowd wants, namely mayoral control, you don't resolve some of these other issues", said Sen. "The Faso-Collins shell game cuts $2.3 billion in federal funding to NY and will force every resident of this state to pay a "Faso-Collins Federal Tax" added onto local property taxes to make up the difference to avoid decimation of our healthcare system". Assembly Democrats balked at that idea, but tried to link the extension to the renewal of local sales taxes, a move that irked Senate Republicans.

Other issues under discussion included reauthorization of county sales taxes and other local taxes, including in New York City, most of which are due to expire December 31. And this week, he needed to use the constitutional powers reserved for governors to call a special session to get lawmakers to return to Albany to consider a package of measures that mostly extend laws already on the books for a decade or more.

"No ethics reform -year after year, scandal after scandal", said Sen. Some said they expected the session to continue into Thursday or Friday.

"It's a good outcome for all New Yorkers and certainly helps Erie County maintain its fiscal stability, " Ryan said of the deal that he said includes the sales tax provisions needed to balance budgets of counties across the state. Rather than trimming his own bloated $160 billion budget, Cuomo insists on sticking it to homeowners, helping to drive more people from New York State.

The state Assembly voted in the early hours of Thursday morning on a bill that takes care of some unfinished business in the 2017 legislative session. The bill was originally proposed by Cuomo, and the Senate approved it last week. James Tedisco (R-Glenville) in defending the Senate position that the local taxes must be dealt with this week, too.

But Republicans balked at any talk of tying counties' sales-tax revenue to a potential cut to the state's coffers from Medicaid.

"It's a really big state", DeFrancisco said.
