Senate Republican leaders are touting the tax cut, which they pushed through the Legislature in 2016 and which is being gradually phased in. Middle-class tax payers will save an average of $250 next year.

Meanwhile, state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has returned from the recent climate conference in Bonn, Germany, where he stressed New York state's interest in reducing emissions and embracing sustainability despite the U.S. pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.

And lawmakers in the state Assembly are holding a hearing Tuesday on election security after Russian government hackers targeted 21 state election systems before last year's election.
