ALBANY -- Bill Mahoney, the Excel Wizard at the New York Public Interest Research Group, is out with his statistal take on the recently concluded 2012 session.
Mahoney provides the Albany version of total hits, runs, strikeouts, wins and losses for lawmakers and the governor. The information he compiled shows everything from which senator had the most bills pass both houses -- Sen. Cathy Young, a Republican from Olean -- to which lawmakers never, ever voted no on any of the bills reaching the floor this year -- Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was one of them.
There's also a handy breakdown on records pertaining to missed votes, and which lawmakers vote most like their partisan leader (Hint: a lot).
