Susan Arbetter speaks with Gov. Andrew Cuomo about the week ahead.

Many Long Islanders have often seen the New York City mayor as their mayor because, beyond New York City, many NYC mayors are major figures in the suburbs and in Albany.

NYSAC Executive Director Stephen Acquario discusses what a drop in the tax cap from 2 percent to 1.66 percent could mean for counties.

Under the Surface author Tom Wilber discusses the need for getting more data before New York makes a decision on fracking and the infrastructure projects already in the works, like the Constitution Pipeline and Inergy’s natural gas storage project in Seneca Lake.
