Governor Cuomo has ordered that flags be flown at half staff across New York in a memorial for the victims of the Las Vegas incident that left at least 58 dead and hundreds injured, calling it “yet another senseless and horrific mass shooting.” Anti-gun violence advocates are renewing calls for a new law that they say might prevent some of these events in the future.

New York’s Democratic lawmakers are vowing to fight President Trump’s  tax overhaul proposal, perhaps even in court. Meanwhile, a think tank’s analysis finds some middle class New Yorkers could actually save a small amount of money under the income tax portion of the plan.  

Governor Cuomo said the tax overhaul plan and the proposal to eliminate state and local tax deductions from federal income taxes would  be “devastating” to New York.

“It is a tax increase plan,” Cuomo said on Long Island Thursday. “Period.”

Cuomo said he might sue.
