Eyes on the Most Powerful Man in New York State Gov’t
NoLandGrab is now reporting that Sheldon Silver is now expected to vote to approve Atlantic Yards today.
The word is out, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is going to vote to APPROVE Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards proposal
because Governor Pataki has allowed a stand-alone vote, not tied to
other appropriations. Also Silver feels that the financial information
provided yesterday (you know, the info that the Empire State
Development Corporation still refuses to release despite several
Freedom of Information Law requests and a subpoena) is good enough.
So much for yesterday’s theorizing that Norman Oder’s reporting stalled the project.
