Cuomo Set To Deliver State Of The State

01.03.12 | Bob Price

The Governor's speech is set for 1:30 on Wednesday at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center.  Cuomo will lay out the challenges the state state is facing and push for major reform legislation.  Much of the speech will focus on job creation, including a call for legalized casino gambling.  He'll also stress the importance of rebuilding the states' crumbling roads and bridges and wants to reorganize state agencies and public authorities.  The Governor says he's also committed to pension reform.  One of the items that's expected to come up is the creation of a new education commission.  Cuomo wants outside experts to look into the state school system and offer suggestions for improving it.
