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.
