Tedisco: "Read My Tie! Pass an On-Time Budget"
March 15, 2005
Assemblyman Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-Schenectady, Saratoga), standing at the Assembly minority budget countdown clock, makes an additional statement with his special "pass the budget" tie. Tedisco said he’ll wear the same tie every day until a state budget is passed. The state constitution requires a new spending plan be adopted by April 1 each year, but the budget has been late for 20 straight years.
