Governor Andrew Cuomo
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is proposing a plan to get a minimum wage hike that doesn't require legislative approval.
A budget deal’s been reached in Albany, just ahead of the April 1st deadline. Governor Cuomo had been fighting hard to include policy into the budget, in particular sorely-needed ethics reform. Details are scarce, but expect more news to come out as the budget is signed.
In an exciting week in Congress, Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s stock is rising higher than any other. The Massachusetts Democrat is leading the charge against some bank-friendly provisions in the recently-passed spending bill, speaking loudly on the issue in opposition to the President. Her strong stances have many Dems saying they’re more Ready for Elizabeth than Hillary.
