There still has been no agreement on the State Budget. It is currently in the Assembly and it is unlikely that there will be an agreement until later tonight or sometime tomorrow. It is hoped that there will be an agreement in time for us to be paid by Friday. There is no way of knowing for sure if that is now possible. We will have a better idea tomorrow.
Although the Governor says that the NYS Comptroller has the authority to release the pay for state workers without agreement on a budget or an extender pay bill, the Comptroller has made it clear that he does not have that authority and cannot release the pay for state workers until there is a budget agreement or an extender pay bill.
At this point, there is no extender pay bill and the only avenue we have to finally getting paid is through an agreement on the 2020-2021 state budget. I will keep you posted.
