Lawmakers end session in Albany today

Created: 06/19/2014 6:58 AM WHEC.com

State lawmakers end their session in Albany today with some bills still in question.

The state Senate has yet to vote on the Women's Equality Bill. Some lawmakers are upset with a provision that would allow late term abortions if a woman's health is threatened by pregnancy. The measure would also expand sexual harassment laws and programs for domestic violence victims. Also in limbo an agreement on medical marijuana. Governor Cuomo opposes a compromise bill reached by the state Assembly and Senate.

Today, News10NBC’s Amanda Ciavarri will be in Albany to talk with local lawmakers about what they've accomplished over the past six months. We've been monitoring their work all session as part of our New York State Exposed series.

Tune into Amanda’s reports tonight on News10NBC at 5 and 6.
