Democrats Take Total Control Of State Government

Come January, Democrats will control all of State Government for the first time in eight years.

The party flip could have major political and economic consequences for the state.

Gov. Cuomo has said he expects a Democratic Senate to pass laws that would protect the state against some of President's policies.

Additionally, in each of the last five sessions, the State Assembly passed a bill that established a state-run single-payer health care system but rejected by the GOP-controlled Senate.   

Similarly, Democrats in the Assembly have passed various abortion expansion and protection bills that Senate Republicans have voted against. 

Democrats have also worked on the education front to limit the expansion of charter schools and repealing parts of a state law that could tie teacher evaluations to test scores.
