2020 Legislative Session Begins This Week In Albany

Albany, N.Y. - The halls of the state Capitol will be buzzing again this week as lawmakers return to Albany for their 2020 session:

One pressing issue they'll need to address is a roughly six billion dollar budget gap that was mostly caused by four billion dollars in Medicaid overspending. The governor's office hasn't said whether he's in favor of raising taxes to cut the deficit.

Other items on the Legislature's agenda are expected to be criminal justice reform, marijuana legalization, education and a new vaccination laws.

This year's legislative session begins Wednesday Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State Address. The session runs until June 2nd.
