Governor Cuomo will go back to a one man show this year as Legislative leaders will not be giving introductory speeches prior to his State of the State address at 1:30. The past two years, Speaker Silver and Leader Skelos got to speak as part of some kumbaya exercise in the capital.
This year with control of the Senate more of a group act, I am sure Mr. Cuomo wants to share the stage with no one and make his agenda the only agenda presented.
Minimum wage, gun control, and campaign finance will surely come up. Lacking may be clarity on fracking and the notion of reforming state government appears to have faded as well.
