NY Gov. Cuomo to detail 2018 agenda in speech to lawmakers

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is poised to deliver his annual state of the state address to lawmakers, and the ideas already are piling up.

The Democrat will outline his 2018 agenda in the speech Wednesday, the first day of the legislative session.

He's already announced plans to overhaul state sexual harassment policies, create new disclosure rules for online political ads and join most other states in allowing early election voting.

Cuomo, a possible presidential candidate in 2020, also is expected to discuss the state's efforts to resist Republican President Donald Trump when it comes to new policies on environmental protection, taxes, immigration and health care.

This year's budget will be especially difficult for Cuomo and lawmakers, who have to contend with a $4 billion deficit in the $150 billion spending plan.
