Cuomo, Legislature promise tax cuts in NY budget

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York legislative leaders have reached a deal on a tentative 2013-14 budget that would keep spending increases under 2% while providing tax rebates and breaks over the next two years.

Cuomo says the $135 billion budget deal includes a $350 rebate check for middle-class families with at least one child and a household income of $40,000 to $300,000. The checks wouldn't be sent to taxpayers until 2014, an election year for Cuomo and lawmakers.

The deal also would raise the $7.25 hourly minimum wage to $9 over three years. But it wouldn't include automatic increases tied to inflation, which Democrats sought.

The proposed budget would include the second extension of a temporary millionaire tax increase that raises $2 billion a year.

    General Mills quietly tweaked its legal policies, which made getting coupons or joining a contest online two things that would simultaneously prevent you from being able to sue the company. But what about Tweeting or just liking a General Mills company's Facebook page? There's concern about that, too.

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Bonobos is an online men's clothing store. The company tried something new in 2013 by trying something, well, old. Bonobos mailed to some customers a traditional catalog. The results were very surprising to these Internet retailers: the catalog attracted more customers to the website. Bonobos' catalog circulation has now increased.
