From the Daily News:
State lawmakers are back to playing hide the pork despite a recent reform law designed to open up the budget process, the Daily News has learned.
Senate Democrats did not itemize a single "member item" project in the $132 billion budget they are to begin passing today.
Instead, they simply listed an $85 million lump sum they say they will spell out in a separate resolution next week - long after the budget is approved.
Austin Shafran, a spokesman for the Senate Democratic majority, cited "time constraints" for leaving out the details.
Assembly Democrats managed to detail $65 million worth of pork spending, but listed an additional $20 million in a lump sum that will also be outlined at a later date.
