NEW YORK, March 23 (Reuters) - Lawmakers in New York state's assembly will not vote on the state's budget for the upcoming fiscal year on Sunday as scheduled, delaying it likely until later in the week, a spokesman for the assembly said on Saturday.

The delay means the vote on $135 billion budget, which is for fiscal year 2013-2014, will now likely go ahead on Thursday during a session that is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. The spokesperson did not say why the vote was delayed.
