The NYT has an update on the conflict between Suffolk County (NY) Executive Steve Levy and the members of the NY state Assembly "minority caucus." The caucus has been behind a drive to deny Suffolk access to some tax revenue (about $320 million) as a result of Levy's opposition to "illegal immigration" and a "day laborer" center. So far, Levy's approval rating seems to have drifted upward, and the "minority caucus" also claims that it has gained from the stand-off, which still continues.
