New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was joined by Vice President Joe Biden at a groundbreaking ceremony for the so-called “new” LaGuardia Airport.

On Tuesday Yale University is set to host a discussion on the federal government’s push to find a cure for cancer.

President Barack Obama established the White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force in January. Vice President Joe Biden is dedicating much of his final year in office trying to accelerate federal efforts to find a cure for cancer after his son, former Delaware state Attorney General Beau Biden, died from the disease last year.

Governor Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden headlines a pep rally to pass paid family leave in New York, but some question whether the governor’s plan is enough.

Cuomo gathered together the same union coalition who have joined him to back the $15 an hour minimum wage effort in the campaign-style rally for his newest cause.

“Now is the time to pass paid family leave,” Cuomo told the cheering crowd.

The governor once again invited Biden, who said family leave only works if it’s subsidized.

In New York City on Thursday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Vice President Joe Biden announced that they’re giving out more than $70 million in funding to clear backlogs of untested rape kits throughout the country. Rape kits include DNA and forensic evidence after incidents of sexual assault. Connecticut is receiving nearly $1.5 million of that federal funding, to clear a backlog of its own.
