  • - New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore is stepping down at the end of August. That will give Gov. Kathy Hochul the chance to nominate her successor. Vincent Bonventre from Albany Law School joins with analysis.
  • New legislation to expand health care access in New York has been introduced in Albany. Sen. Jeremy Cooney, D-Monroe, joins us to discuss the bill, which would allow New Yorkers to buy in to the state's Essential Plan.
