ALBANY, N.Y. -- It's the last day of the legislative session for New York lawmakers. This week, there was plenty of last-minute action on a number of bills.
Both houses passed Governor Cuomo's bill for the creation of a justice center to protect the state's disabled from abuse. The center will have an independent prosecutor who could pursue claims of abuse and neglect.
There could be movement today on the teacher evaluation measure. The governor introduced the bill Monday night, right before the deadline to allow a vote today. It would make teacher evaluations available parents, but would withhold the teachers' names from public. Cuomo faces some opposition on the issue, but says it's not a priority to pass the bill this session.
The state legislature is also expected to vote today on the takeover of NYRA.
