Morning Roundup: Tuesday, June 29

Good morning.

The National Weather Service says it will be a windy day today with temperatures on the cooler side. Its forecast for the Buffalo area calls for sun and a high near 69.

Here's a look at the latest headlines this morning:

- State lawmakers will take up the last of their budget bills today after the Legislature on Monday approved the last major spending bills for 2010-11 -- nearly three months after the fiscal year began. Tom Precious of the News Albany Bureau reports on today's front page that Gov. David A. Paterson wasted little time Monday night vetoing $419 million in education spending he said the state can't afford.

- The Obama girls, Malia and Sasha, visited the Canadian side of Niagara Falls on Sunday, the White House confirmed in a story by News Staff Reporter Gene Warner. Few details of the trip have emerged.

- Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority Director Lawrence M. Meckler will retire in October, and he says his departure has nothing to do with an attempt by some NFTA commissioners to force him out earlier this month, writes News Staff Reporter Robert J. McCarthy.
