Albany awaits Paterson's latest spending bill
State lawmakers will vote on Gov. David Paterson's (D-N.Y.) latest emergency spending bill on Monday.
Without a spending bill, the state could run out of money and operations could be forced to shut down.
A state budget was supposed to be in place by April 1, but because of disagreements over cuts and other proposals, lawmakers have been passing weekly emergency spending bills since the deadline.
The bill will likely include deep cuts in human service and mental hygiene programs to confront a deficit in the billions.
