WAITING GAME: Also in N.Y., Colangelo & Mahoney report New York Gov. George Pataki “set next Wednesday as the new date” for the Public Authorities Control Board to vote on $300M in state funding for the West Side stadium. But sources said that the vote “is likely to be delayed once again” because New York state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver “is likely to exercise his one-time option of tabling the agenda item, ... just as Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno did this week” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 5/19). Pataki: “I just want to do what is right for the people of New York, that is to build the stadium, to get it approved, and I’m going to continue to push for it” (N.Y. TIMES, 5/19).
