Worst Case Scenario?

If you don't want public services to collapse and taxes to soar, you'd better hope yesterday was an unusual day, and January was an unusual month. According "Rates on $100 million of bonds sold by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, with bidding run by Goldman, soared to 20 percent yesterday from 4.3 percent a week ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg...New York state's Metropolitan Transportation Authority also had failures, officials said." Did you hear that? The MTA tried to sell bonds to finance it's operations, and no one would buy them. All this pontificating about the MTA surplus, and the reality is the agency is going deeper and deeper into debt, but now perhaps it can't.

Mayor Quinn?

via the New York Sun

The City Council will cut its own budget to help close the city's budget gap, Speaker Christine Quinn announced yesterday in a "State of the City" speech crafted to address the city's uncertain economic future.

Ms. Quinn, a likely candidate for mayor in 2009, echoed many of Mayor Bloomberg's strongest themes in her speech, such as fiscal responsibility, education, and infrastructure investments. The speech could serve as a blueprint for her candidacy, with Ms. Quinn perhaps positioning herself as a responsible heir to the current administration.

"Today's Senate passage of my e-STOP legislation draws new protections against sexual predators on the Internet closer to reality. I am encouraged by the overwhelming support this vitally important bill is building. Just today, the five New York City District Attorneys endorsed the bill. I am looking forward to the Assembly voting on the measure at the earliest opportunity so the Governor can sign it into law. With this bill, New York's children will have the most comprehensive protections against sexual predators on the Internet in the nation."
