Full Episode: Rest of Session, Suing Gun Manufacturers, 'Less is More' Parole Bill | New York NOW

On this week’s edition of New York NOW: Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced two nominees to fill vacancies on the state’s highest court: the Court of Appeals. We’ll have details.

Zach Williams from City & State Magazine, and David Lombardo from Capitol Pressroom join us for analysis on the news of the week, including what’s ahead for the rest of this year’s legislative session.

Assemblymember Pat Fahy, D-Albany, is co-sponsoring a bill aimed at making it easier for gun manufacturers to be sued if their products are used in crimes. That comes as many areas of the state, including her district, have seen an increase in gun violence.

Assemblymember Phara Souffrant Forrest, D-Brooklyn, is proposing a bill that would limit the enforcement of technical violations of parole. That’s aimed at minimizing recidivism in certain communities.
