the 2012 legislative session (A review)
Simply put the 2012 NYS legislative session stands out only because of the continued cowing of what was once a wild politial dog of a legislature by Gov Cuomo! The functionality, the on time b!udgeting, Cuomo has provided the proverbial Iron hand as it pertains to what was once the poster child for rampant self serving Poltics as usual! And as long as Cuomo II continues to keep the NYS legislature on a tight leash, as long as everything functions, and more imoprtantly, looks functional, his power will continue to grow! But despite the powerful shield he has created for himself in his culling of the legilative morass, there is danger on the political horizon. For while he has taken control of the legislature, the decisions made on unions, on teachers, and fracking to name a few ,are not sitting well with a lot of powerful people, and they could and will come back to haunt him in the all imoprtant re-election camapign of 2014! But that said, the 2012 legislative session gets(in accordance with the proposed teacher rating system) a B, because while much was accomplished, much was left undone, and the much that was accomplished still lends itself to question! And with that said, until the upcoming special session------!
