A multiyear plan to solve New York State's combined $4.4 billion budget gap for fiscal years 1992 and 1993 is now back on the front burner after Gov. Mario M. Cuomo and legislative leaders met yesterday and agreed to pursue such a program.

The agreement is a turnaround from last week, when Gov. Cuomo announced that talks had broken down between him and the leaders over a plan to close the budget gaps over 15 months. Gov. Cuomo then presented a deficit reduction plan to deal only with the $875 million budget gap projected in fiscal 1992, which ends March 31. A $3.6 billion gap is projected for fiscal 1993.
