It's good to be in charge of your own schedule

From the Times Union:

Serving in the state Legislature isn't just a part-time job: Lawmakers get to be their own bosses, too.

That became apparent this week as legislators decided -- just like that -- to extend their April recess by an extra two days, giving them two full weeks off.

Lawmakers were originally scheduled to take off the week of April 18, off and then return on Wednesday and Thursday of the following week for a two-day session.

But they decided to blow off April 27 and 28, and will instead resume on May 2 following their break.

is not April 18, tax return filing last day ?

they probably need the extra time to divide our taxpayer revenues, that they will eventually give away to the public unions and then get reelected again.

have a happy day,working and paying into the political money laundering scam.

C'mon Crappy, don't they deserve two extra days off for actually passing the budget on time this year? And a nice raise too - do I smell a raise in legislature salaries this year?

Let them take off the entire year - -we'd be better off without them in Albany.

"do I smell a raise in legislature salaries this year?"

Not likely. Not until they give judges their long-over due raises, which they won't. It's too bad that they don't give themselves raises, but take away ALL outside employment, activities and interests. That's a budget and ethics plan I could live with.
