NYS corruption commission shouldn't have ended, say polled voters

A new poll finds that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is still feeling the fallout from the demise of his Moreland Commission, a panel that was investigating corruption in the legislature. Cuomo disbanded the commission as part of the state budget deal.

Since the budget was settled, US Attorney Preet Bharara has said he'll continue with the investigations, and has asked for and received all of the paperwork on the probes.  Go to full article

Are Albany policies "starving" upstate NY cities?

A Cornell University expert says state policies are making it harder for upstate New York's cities to regain their past economic vitality.
