Budget bills sit on a legislator's desk in the Assembly Chamber at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y., on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state's top legislative leaders say they've agreed on their second straight on-time budget. The $132.5 billion budget would increase spending by 2 percent while expanding economic development and jobs programs and providing some protections for the poorest New Yorkers and immigrants.
