Governor Andrew Cuomo traveled to Rochester afternoon to deliver his State of the State and Budget Message.

Cuomo spoke to local leaders Thursday afternoon at the Eastman School of Music's Kilbourne Hall.

He re-emphasized points originally made in his address in Albany back in January, including enforcing stricter gun laws like the SAFE Act and bringing more casinos to Upstate New York.

Cuomo also got a standing ovation after calling for a modern Women's Equality Act.

"Let's New York pass a true women's equality act. We were the birthplace of women's equality at Seneca Falls. Start by shattering the glass ceiling, women still make 77 cents to a man's dollar," Cuomo said.

Cuomo's visit came a day after he delivered his budget amendments in Albany, where he discussed changes to the state's medicaid reimbursement rate and teacher evaluations.
