INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Thomas Kaplan reports: “In the wake of mass shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin and an uptick in gun violence in New York City, lawmakers are planning a new push in Albany to win approval of tighter gun laws in New York State.”
New York Post
Sally Goldenberg writes: “From shop owners to industry titans, city business leaders yesterday cranked up pressure on City Council Speaker Christine Quinn to make sure she holds her ground against a proposal that would force city companies to pay their workers for sick days.”
Carl Campanile writes: “Keep Chick-fil-A out of New York City? Fuhgeddaboutit! Some Brooklyn politicians yesterday invited the chicken-restaurant chain to open an eatery in the Borough of Churches, countering opponents such as City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who say Chick-fil-A is not welcome because of its president’s opposition to gay marriage.”
Erik Kriss reports: “The state is asking Uncle Sam for $10 billion — to save money. Gov. Cuomo formally requested the massive sum yesterday to improve New York Medicaid recipients’ access to primary care and housing, move more long-term care patients into cost-saving managed care, and train and ‘support’ health- care workers.”
New York Daily News
Erin Durkin reports: “Mayor Bloomberg visited the city’s biggest Sikh temple Monday to offer support for members of the faith following the mass shooting at one of its temples in Wisconsin.”
Rocco Parascandola writes: “New Yorkers filed fewer stop-and-frisk complaints with the Civilian Complaint Review Board — even as the number of police stops increased to a record high, according to the agency’s annual report.”
