The power struggle in New York's Senate has paralyzed that body when it comes to actually doing the work taxpayers pay them for. The Assembly has been in session and passing bills, but it too is distracted. There's a lot that needs to be done, and the end of the legislative session looms.
Newspapers across upstate have editorialized on that, but today several will be revisiting that topic as part of the Upstate Focus project, in which newspapers publish their independently-reached opinions on a topic of mutual concern. In the interests of full disclosure, this seventh topic in the series also includes some editorials that ran within the past couple of days, in newspapers that couldn't so quickly revisit the topic.
The full set of editorials is at www.buffalonews.com/upstatefocus ; if you'd like to comment, here's your chance.
