INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Mireya Navarro reports: “After four years of study by the state, the Cuomo administration now says its decision on whether to allow high-volume hydraulic fracturing in New York will have to wait until it conducts a review of the potential public health effects of the controversial natural gas drilling process.”
Thomas Kaplan writes: “Election officials began to count paper ballots on Thursday in two Republican primary battles involving senators who voted last year to legalize same-sex marriage, but both races remained too close to call at the end of the day.”
Matt Flegenheimer reports: “New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission approved a set of standards on Thursday governing its so-called Taxi of Tomorrow, the latest step toward a nearly uniform yellow-taxi fleet in the city.”
Andy Newman looks at more numbers in the Mayor’s Management Report.
David Chen notes: “One sure sign that the 2013 Democratic primary for New York City mayor is under way: the likely candidates, seeking to differentiate themselves from Michael R. Bloomberg, are suing him.
Winnie Hu writes about a fight to save a Bronx horse named Black Beauty.
New York Post
Beth DeFalco reports: “Weaker-than-expected tax collections and continued high unemployment are putting the squeeze on the state treasury.”
Goldenberg & Seifman note: “Candidates, voters and poll workers are claiming fraud at a polling site in Williamsburg in a contentious district-leader race involving the handpicked candidate of former Brooklyn Democratic boss Vito Lopez. District leader Lincoln Restler, who’s trailing Lopez candidate Chris Olechowski in a post-Primary Day count, claimed widespread fraud and said he is considering a lawsuit.”
Dave Seifman reports: “Mayor Bloomberg is going to England next month to speak at the Conservative Party’s conference, his office said last night.”
New York Daily News
Ken Lovett writes: “The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is reviewing the actions of three of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s children who voted for their father even though they no longer live in the district.”
Wall Street Journal
Lisa Fleisher reports: “New city statistics are showing a steep decline in parent involvement in New York public schools, giving potential ammunition to critics who say the Department of Education under Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been unresponsive to families”
And in a story that our Lindsey Christ also reported on last night, Fleisher also writes: “A proposal to give buyouts to New York City public schoolteachers who don't have permanent jobs at schools is ‘dead in the water,’ teachers union President Michael Mulgrew said Thursday.”
Andrew Grossman reports: “A group of unions and advocates for people exposed to toxins at the World Trade Center site are forming a lobbying organization to fend off threats to federal money set aside under the Zadroga Act for the medical care of sick workers, first responders and others.”
Jacob Gershman notes: “A congressional oversight committee on Thursday accused New York of overbilling Medicaid by billions of dollars by inflating reimbursement payments to its state-run institutions for the mentally disabled.”
Have a great weekend. Until Monday.
