NYS Budget Latest

ALBANY (AP) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York legislative leaders have reached a deal on a tentative 2013-14 budget that would keep spending increases under 2 percent while providing tax rebates and breaks over the next two years.
 
Cuomo says the $135 billion budget deal includes a $350 rebate check for middle-class families with at least one child and a household income of $40,000 to $300,000. The checks wouldn't be sent to taxpayers until 2014, an election year for Cuomo and lawmakers.
 
The deal also would raise the $7.25 hourly minimum wage to $9 over three years. But it wouldn't include automatic increases tied to inflation, which Democrats sought.
 
The proposed budget would include the second extension of a temporary millionaire tax increase that raises $2 billion a year.
