Gov. Andrew Cuomo will deliver his third annual State of the State address Wednesday in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center.
A tip for first-time attendees: Don’t check your coat. The governor likes to keep things cold.
Cuomo has declined to keep up the tradition of official pre-speech leaks. But he has dropped hints about the topics he'll be discussing, including responses to the two highest-profile tragedies of recent months: Superstorm Sandy and the Sandy Hook massacre.
Actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger held a press conference this weekend to dismiss suggestions that violent movies and video games are to blame for gun massacres such as the recent killing of 20 children in Connecticut.
On the second anniversary of the Arizona mass shooting that almost took her life and almost a month after the shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut that claimed the lives of 20 children, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords announced today the formation of a political action committee aimed at countering the influence of the gun lobby in Washington.
