Holiday weekend ends without N.Y. Senate deal
(AP) - New York's Senate has adjourned again aftermeeting in another extraordinary session called by Gov. DavidPaterson.
No bills were debated or passed in Sunday's 3-minute session.
Two Senate factions continue to refuse to recognize each other'sleaders so no legislative action was made on critical bills -including some that would extend laws that expired during thestandoff.
The Senate has been gridlocked since a June 8 coup by aRepublican-dominated coalition versus the Democratic conference. The Senate is now evenly split after one of the dissidentsdefected back to the Democratic conference. Action on criticalbills has been stymied for weeks.
