ROCHESTER, NY (WXXI) - Roughly three-quarters of New Yorkers say they have either already been vaccinated against COVID-19 or plan to do so; the remainder don't plan on getting the vaccine.
Those are the findings of a new poll from Siena College. Pollster Steve Greenberg said the largest numbers of survey respondents who say they won't get vaccinated are represented among five different demographic groups: Republicans, independents, African Americans, Latinos, and voters under the age of 35.
SYRACUSE, NY (WRVO) - When Kamala Harris is sworn in today as the nation's first female vice president, it's a milestone that will not go unnoticed in central New York. It's a day that Sally Roesch Wagner, a women's suffrage movement historian and founder of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation in Fayetteville, has been waiting for, for a long time.
STATE COLLEGE, PA (WPSU) - Dr. Michael E. Mann is distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Penn State and director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. He is recognized around the world as a leading expert on climate change.
ALBANY, NY (WSKG) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in his budget address Tuesday, said the state’s fiscal future is dependent on how much aid it receives from Washington under the new administration of President-elect Joe Biden and the Democratic-led Congress. Cuomo is seeking $15 billion to plug two years of state budget gaps, and he’s threatening to sue if he doesn’t get it.
NEW YORK NOW - Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled a new proposal Tuesday to legalize marijuana in New York for adult, recreational use that would set aside a specific amount of tax revenue annually for social equity purposes, like reinvestment in communities disproportionately affected by the state’s drug laws. That’s different from Cuomo’s previous marijuana legalization proposals, which allowed funding for social equity purposes, but didn’t earmark an exact amount.
