New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law today that requires banks to care for "zombie" properties--homes that are in foreclosure and have been abandoned.

On Thursday Cuomo traveled around the state, from Syracuse to Long Island, talking about the new law. He said the law first gives the owner the opportunity to stay in their home and adjust the mortgage to an amount they can pay.

It was a year ago today that a grand jury on Staten Island declined to indict New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo for putting Eric Garner into a chokehold that led to his death. Garner’s daughter Erica said she believes that has led to more police brutality.

"When Daniel Pantaleo was not indicted it set the tone for so many officers across the country that they can kill us and get away with it" she said.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating Exxon Mobil after allegations that the company funded misinformation about climate change.

Schneiderman is asking for financial records and emails in order to find out if Exxon lied about the link between hydrocarbons and climate change. Under New York law a company can be prosecuted for lying to investors even if the deceit was unintentional.
