People give state of state

Albany, NY – One day before New York State governor George Pataki gives his final State of the State address, anti-poverty advocates have given their own state of the state. On the steps of the state Capitol, they called for affordable housing, universal health care and a living wage for low income workers in New York. For New York's Capital Region, many of these concerns reflect a strain on charitable service providers.

WAMC's Capital District Bureau Chief Jessica Bloustein was at the rally.
