    Cuomo has threatened to keep lawmakers in Albany until rent protections are secured.

    The state Legislature is set to continue talks on New York City's rent control laws after agreeing to a temporary extension late Monday.     

    The new deadline for the 1946 law to lapse is midnight Tuesday.     

    The Republican-led Senate wants to extend the rent control law without changes. The Democrat-led Assembly wants stronger protections for tenants.     

    Negotiations with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who also wants to bolster the law, resulted in no agreement late Monday.     

    The issue has been linked to a property tax cap and gay marriage legislation proposed by Cuomo as the end of the legislative session nears.
