INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Ray Hernandez reports: “New York State has become a prime focus of the battle for control of Congress, as both parties and their allies deploy ground troops and pump millions of dollars into more than a half-dozen competitive districts.”

New York Post

Dave Seifman reports: “Facing annual deficits estimated at $65 million, the city’s Housing Authority last month sent 151 tenant leaders to a housing conference in New Orleans and picked up the tab with federal funds, The Post has learned.”

Sally Goldenberg notes: “A group pushing a controversial paid-sick-days bill will up the ante on City Council Speaker Christine Quinn today by trying to hand her petitions with 50,000 signatures supporting the measure.”

New York Daily News

Glenn Blain reports: “A booming New York industry that recalls the days of moonshine and Prohibition — tiny distilleries producing whiskey and other liquor — received a boost from Gov. Cuomo Wednesday.
The governor signed legislation allowing so-called micro-distilleries to sell their wares at farmers’ markets and fairs across the state.”

Wall Street Journal

Jacob Gershman writes: “Assemblyman Vito Lopez has refused to resign over sexual harassment allegations, saying his fate should be decided by his constituents. The embattled Brooklyn lawmaker has reasons to be confident. Chief among them, perhaps, is his Republican opponent: Richy Garcia, a 26-year-old political unknown who said he isn't actively campaigning or raising money. “

Until tomorrow.
