New York NOW

Previewing the State of the State Address

January 3, 2020

This week on New York Now—we’re less than a week away from Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address, where he’s expected to put forth a number of proposals that include high-speed rail, a vaping ban, legalizing paid surrogacy and more. We’ll have a preview of all that and more on the Reporter’s Roundtable. Casey Seiler of the Times Union hosts, joined by Karen Dewitt and Anna Gronewald of Politico NY.

Also on this episode, Dan Clark of the New York Law Journal talks to United University Professions President Fred Kowal about the union’s new NY-25 plan to improve the SUNY system, and Karen DeWitt speaks with upstate Assemblyman Phil Steck (D-Colonie) about the possibility of reinstating an old tax to help reduce the state’s $6 billion deficit.
