Basically the Democrats want a power sharing agreement (Espada and co-conspirators said this was about a bi-partisan reform anyway, right?), but the Republicans refuse. Since the two conferences are split 31-31, if the Democrats stay away the Republicans and Espada cannot get a 32 person quorum to begin a session. I wonder how long the Dems can hold out? Espada is hinting a some type of legal action against the boycotting Democrats. (see video below via Daily News)
Espada call a session and take a new 32-20 vote to elect more principled leadership.
This is going to be a long summer in Albany...
