You Paid For It: Assembly no-shows


A big part of politics, they say, is just showing up.

And members of the state Assembly are required to be in Albany 60 days of the year. That's about three days a week for just the first half of the year, with three weeks of vacation. And for that, most get paid in the $79,000-$100,000 range. And most are here for much of that time.

But every day of the legislative session, there are Assembly members absent -- some of them frequently.

CBS6 is keeping tabs, because You Paid For It.
