I’ve been getting my hopes up, but The Empire Zone is reporting that, alas, there probably won’t be a shutdown of the New York State government over the budget impasse.
Of course, the real reason the pols don’t want a budget impasse is because people might not miss the state government when it’s gone. Remember when Clinton and Gingrich shut down the federal government in the 1990s? Remember how it caused havoc? Me neither.
