ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York government news, lawmakers are entering the final weeks of their 2018 session and the fate of several high-profile bills will soon be decided.

They include measures to make it easier to prosecute sex trafficking and allow early voting. One bill would permit sports betting and another would legalize recreational marijuana.

While some of those bills could pass before the session is scheduled to end June 20, others may be too complicated or contentious to pass before time runs out.

A bill that would extend the statute of limitations on child molestation and allow victims to sue over decades-old abuse is also awaiting action. That legislation has long been blocked by the state Senate and appears to be languishing again this year.
