New York (WENY) - It's the final week of the legislative session, and many issues still need to be answered by lawmakers. A number of unresolved issues including casinos, Tax Free NY and campaign fiance reform are expected to be addressed this week. Another big issue is Cuomo's the Women's equality agenda. Republicans are opposing a portion of Cuomo's bill on Women's rights that would strengthen abortion rights. Cuomo is urging Legislators to compromise and to finish strong and rebuild public confidence.
