Where we at?

Posted January, 4 2012 by arianne

Holy cow – can you believe it’s already 2012? It sounds so…futuristic.  And, being that the future is now, we are at that all-important day in January when our Governor will give his annual State of the State speech.

What will be on his agenda for this year? Well, we can guess a few things that will probably be on there… Medicaid…the State budget… hydrofracking.  Worthy issues, no doubt.  WNYC gave a good analysis of this yesterday on The Empire.

What do we we especially want to hear on his agenda? A health insurance exchange for New York tops out HCFANY’s wish list.  Let’s hope it tops Governor Cuomo’s list as well.

The Governor’s speech is scheduled to be broadcast today at 1:30pm.  You can watch the Governor’s speech streaming live via his homepage, which you can access by clicking here (also available in Spanish and closed captioning). 

Let’s keep our fingers crossed, folks!
