Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney on the budget and the dissolving of the Moreland Commission, of which she was a member.

How does the budget affect central New York? Senator Joe Griffo (R-Rome) discusses $40 million dollars in extra infrastructure aid he helped to procure for municipalities in light of the rough winter; Assemblyman Al Stirpe (D-Cicero) shares his thoughts on both the tax freeze and education aid.
