Jennifer Cunningham reports: “Timothy Cardinal Dolan chided Rush Limbaugh on Sunday, saying the campaign against the White House birth control policy shouldn’t be ‘pugnacious.’ ‘Whatever we do, and however strongly we feel, we do it charitably, we do it civilly,’ Dolan said after Sunday morning Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.”

In his column, Ken Lovett notes: “Gov. Cuomo’s budget team pushed the state teachers retirement system into scrapping a critical review of his pension reform plan, the Daily News has learned. A formal fiscal analysis sent to Cuomo’s budget office on Jan. 31 by the organization that administers the pension system for teachers and school administrators included a section slugged ‘legal concerns.’ “

Lovett also writes: “A previous state Senate GOP redistricting plan to merge six city Democrats into three districts will be dramatically scaled back. Under a revised redistricting plan due soon, Queens Sens. Michael Gianaris and Jose Peralta are no longer expected to be put into a single district, insiders say. The plan should also ‘decouple’ Brooklyn Sens. Eric Adams and Velmanette Montgomery.But Queens Democratic Sens. Toby Ann Stavisky and Tony Avella would still merge into one district in order to create an Asian-majority district in Flushing, insiders said.”
