Legislative Dysfunction: Example 425,701

The AP reports that despite the fact that there is universal agreement that it will be impossible for New York to meet the current state mandated deadline (September 2007) for replacing lever machines, the two chambers could not come to agreement on a new date before the legislative session ended.

"They have to do something," said Lee Daghlian, a spokesman for the state Board of Elections.

Can we suggest that when they return to Albany, each chamber pass something, and then convene a conference committee?
