WDT alum and current New York Daily News Albany bureau chief Kenneth Lovett has the details on the emerging deal to change New York state's tax code.
You'll have to read the story to get the particulars, but what's interesting is that it is not revenue-neutral — that is, it would tax New Yorkers more heavily than if the millionaires' tax were allowed to expire.
That will mean Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush won't support it. He told me he'll only support something that is revenue-neutral.
State Sen. Patty Ritchie did not take a position when I asked whether she would support or oppose a net tax increase.
