Just stopping in briefly to update y'all on the situation in Albany.
One major item in the recently passed budget affecting us is this, via Crains:
Eliminating the sales tax exemption on clothing and shoes costing under $110. The exemption would end in October, then return April 1, but exempt clothing and shoes worth $55. The $110 exemption would return April 1, 2012. That is supposed to bring in $330 million.
Might I add that if I waited 4 months to finish a project, I wouldn't have a job. Hell, if it was 4 days I wouldn't have a job.
In other news, they also caught the guys who killed the gas station attendant in Flushing and the young man on the J train platform.
The rest can wait.
Discuss and I'll be back before you know it.
