The New York State Senate is experiencing its worst gridlock in nine years, with the two major factions tied at 31 members each. No legislation is moving through the chamber, but there’s lots of finger-pointing.
Tempers flared on the Senate floor as Democrat Michael Gianaris blamed the GOP for the stalemate.
“They don’t have the votes to pass a single thing in this chamber,” Gianaris shouted.
After two days of infighting, Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan was frustrated.
“We saw the Democrats paying shameless games with people’s lives,” he said.
