ALBANY---[WENY]---Some not-so-encouraging news for Governor Cuomo. It appears his 10-point women's agenda will be dropped for now. He says his women's rights agenda and the abortion language threatening it from passing, will likely be taken off the table until next year, an election year.
     However, closed-door negotiations are set to continue this week. Yesterday, the Senate's Independent Democratic Conference introduced its own women's bill dropping the abortion language: The key sticking point for senate republicans. The regular legislative session is scheduled to end Thursday.
