Press Pass: Buffalo News Suburban Editor Bruce Andriatch on Erie County budget


Legislative action on the 2013 Erie County budget is complete.  A coalition of five Republicans and one Democrat pushed through spending cuts that eliminated the tax increase that County Executive Mark Poloncarz had recommended in his proposed budget.  WBFO's Mark Scott has more with Buffalo News Suburban Editor Bruce Andriatch in this week's Press Pass.

Also addressed in this edition are Andriatch's recent column on cell phone use while driving, delivery thefts in Amherst and Tonawanda and a dispute over garbage totes in Cheektowaga.
