Morning Roundup: Tuesday, May 11

Good morning. Here's a look at some of the latest headlines:

- The Amherst Town Board  failed to pass a resolution Monday night to hold a special referendum June 15 on downsizing, News Staff Reporter Sandra Tan reports. The resolution would have to be resubmitted for board approval and be subject to another public hearing before it could be added to the general election ballot in November.

 - About half the state work force will face a one-day-a-week furlough starting next week under cost-savings legislation approved Monday in Albany. See state workers who protested the furlough on Monday in this photo gallery.

- More details of President Obama's visit to Buffalo on Thursday have emerged, and it will include a stop at a small manufacturing company on the East Side, News Washington Bureau Chief Jerry Zremski reports. Rep. Brian Higgins, D-Buffalo, said Obama will visit Industrial Support Inc. to push the idea that manufacturing companies can thrive.
