Gov. George E. Pataki vetoed a bill that would have raised the state's hourly minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.15 by 2007. Pataki said in Albany that he favored a minimum wage increase but that the national level, which is also $5.15, should be raised. He said raising the state level would leave businesses at a competitive disadvantage and drive jobs to bordering New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Gov. George Pataki, flanked Monday by most of the state's Republican leadership, endorsed George W. Bush's bid for the GOP presidential nomination.

The state, with a 5-3 Democratic advantage in registration, hasn't backed the Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan carried it twice, in 1980 and 1984.
