We have brought up this question to the school board several times. “What is going to happen when the state and the county don’t deliver?”. The answer always is “the county will deliver”.

New York is Broke: Paterson Delays School and Local Payments

New York has run out of cash and Governor Paterson ordered his budget staff to delay payments to counties, schools, local governments and non-profit service providers until things improve. He said he would probably be sued for refusing to pay the state’s obligations on time. But he said he had no choice. The only alternative was insolvency, he said.

Well there’s a novel idea.
