Lawmakers continue talks on NYS budget in Albany

Lawmakers will continue talks Sunday for a sending plan on the New York state budget that is 24 past deadline.



Despite a day of closed door negotiations, sticking points included how much aid Albany will give local schools.



Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed a billion dollar increase over last year.



State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and other legislators are hoping for more.



Also at issue is a proposal to raise the age of criminal responsibility from 16 years old to 18 years old.



Gov. Cuomo says if a spending plan is not approved by tonight, he'll take action to extend the current budget.
