Governor Cuomo will deliver his third State of the State address today. He's expected to tackle all kinds of issues.
Among them, an increase in the state's minimum wage and a push to expand campaign disclosure laws. But, expect the strongest focus to be on two immediate issues that have received no shortage of national attention.
"This state has tremendous needs that are being presented at this time. The issue of gun violence, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. These are just issues of the day that have been presented to you that government needs to respond to. Plus everything else that you've been doing," said Governor Cuomo.
Cuomo is expected to propose changes to how the state prepares for and responds to natural disasters.
YNN will carry the address live beginning at 1:30 p.m. We will also have reaction following the speech and a complete wrap up on Capital Tonight at 8:00 p.m. and again at 11:30 p.m.
