ALBANY, NY (Erie News Now)-- A little after 11 p.m. Tuesday evening, the New York State Senate and the Assembly officially pass the final state budget. 

Earlier Tuesday evening, lawmakers passed one of the ten budget bills, the Education, Labor and Family Assistance bill, this year's "big ugly"-- one big bill where several contentious issues are packaged together. 

This year some of those issues include bail reform and electrifying buildings in the state. 

Some lawmakers who voted against the "big ugly" bill highlighted the proposal on bail reform--to eliminate the least restrictive means standard. Some lawmakers said there needed to be a dangerousness standard. 

While some other lawmakers who voted in favor of the "big ugly" said budgets are compromises. 

“On many of the issues debated here today, I have confidence in my constituents to understand these are complex issues. And we are dealing with legislation. And I have confidence they will have faith that we are making the best choices we can,” said Sen. Shelley Mayer (D-37th Senate District). 

Sen. Mayer added this budget is another historic year of investing in foundation aid--the state's main education operating aid formula.
