The "Spend-o-Meter" is back. Now that a new state budget is on the way, the device, which can be seen at empirecenter.org, has been updated. Here are the latest figures: for the fiscal year, the state will spend over 4-thousand dollars per second. Multiply that by 60, and you get over 250-thousand dollars per minute...times another 60, and it's just over 15-million dollars an hour.

Continue to multiply, and you get 361-million dollars per day, over two-point-five-billion per week, and just under eleven-billion dollars a month. The budget comes in at nearly 132-billion dollars.
