Melissa Marrone, the HHC Coordinator at the Housing and Homeless Coalition of Syracuse and Onondaga County, discusses Gov. Cuomo’s executive order requiring the state’s homeless to be removed from the streets in freezing temperatures.

Journalist Bill Hammond will preview the 2016 legislative session, which starts tomorrow. He will also share his analysis why the state shares the blame in the collapse of the Health Republic co-op.
