Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday will kick off the 2020 legislative session, with state lawmakers poised to see if they can match the breakneck pace of last year while dealing with a multibillion dollar deficit.
Cuomo, a Democrat, will deliver his State of the State address at 1:30 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center, adjacent to the State Capitol.
The speech is typically a governor’s chance to outline his wish list for the year without having to really explain how to pay for everything. That will come when Cuomo proposes a budget, expected by Jan. 21.
