Capitol Pressroom

Oct. 21, 2015: Sen. John DeFrancisco, J.J. Hanson, Dr. Leslie Kohman, Bill Sherman, Bruce Gyory

Sen. John DeFrancisco (R – Syracuse) is the new Deputy Majority Leader of the Senate. We speak with the senator about investing in upstate infrastructure and his priorities for the upcoming session.

After he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2014, J.J. Hanson, the President of Patients Rights Action Fund and a former aide to Govs. Spitzer and Paterson, became an advocate against aid-in-dying/physician-assisted suicide. He is leading a fight against legislation that would legalize the practice in New York State.

We discuss the American Cancer Society’s new mammogram recommendations with Dr. Leslie Kohman, the board medical spokesperson for the American Cancer Society Eastern Division and the Medical Director of Upstate Cancer Center in Syracuse, and Bill Sherman, Vice President of Government Relations for American Cancer Society Action Network.

Manatt, Phelps and Phillips’ Bruce Gyory analyzes how Gov. Cuomo’s second term cabinet is faring.
