State Budget Talks Continue In Albany

ALBANY, N.Y. - Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York's legislative leaders are negotiating over property tax relief and pre-kindergarten funding a week before a new budget is due.

Leaders emerging from closed-door talks Monday at the Capitol say they continue to make progress to get a deal by April 1.  

There have been differences over how much money to devote to pre-K, a signature issue for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. There also has been legislative resistance to Cuomo's property tax relief plan, which would require localities to consolidate or share services for local homeowners to benefit.

Cuomo says Monday more than 225 local officials support his plan.
