AL­BANY, N.Y. » Se­lect New York law­mak­ers will be back in Al­bany start­ing this week to be­gin the long process of craft­ing a new state bud­get.

Sev­eral com­mit­tees have sched­uled hear­ings in the next few weeks to ex­am­ine spend­ing on agri­cul­tural pro­grams, the courts, en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and li­braries. They’re ex­pected to re­view how much is al­ready be­ing spent, and whether those in­vest­ments should be in­creased, de­creased or al­tered in the next state spend­ing plan.

First up is the Assem­bly Com­mit­tee on Agri­cul­ture, which meets Tues­day in Al­bany. On Fri­day, the Assem­bly ju­di­ciary com­mit­tee meets, with fur­ther hear­ings sched­uled by other com­mit­tees in the fol­low­ing weeks.

The leg­isla­tive ses­sion doesn’t get un­der­way un­til Jan­uary, and law­mak­ers hope to ap­prove a new spend­ing plan by April 1, the start of the state’s fis­cal year.
