Gov. Andrew Cuomo has postponed his trip to western New York to sign the state budget that was passed by the Legislature last week.

Cuomo's office says Monday morning that weather conditions have forced the postponement of the trip.

The governor was scheduled to hold ceremonial signings of the spending plan at noon Monday at the University of Buffalo's South Campus and at 2:15 p.m. at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. There's no immediate word on when the trip will be rescheduled.

Lawmakers completed passage of the $135 billion budget late Thursday night, three days before the March 31 deadline. That gave the state its third-consecutive on-time budget.

Cuomo and legislative leaders call the spending plan a family-friendly, business-friendly and middle-class-friendly budget.
