Kristine Bellino, WIBX

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The New York comptroller reports that state agencies have spent more than $462 million on overtime in the first nine months of this year, a $65 million jump from last year.

Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says if the trend continues the state could spend record overtime of more than $600 million in 2013.

The total was $529 million last year.

The report shows four agencies with the largest increases and accounting for 70 percent of the total.

They are Department of Corrections, $121.9 million, up 20 percent; Department of Transportation, $36.1 million, up 63 percent; Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, $95.3 million, up 10 percent; and the Office of Mental Health, $71.7 million, up 8 percent.

State Budget Division spokesman Morris Peters said the comptroller’s report lacked context and all agencies have remained within their budgets.
