New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will take his sky-high popularity into his third year with an agenda to ban assault weapons, raise the minimum wage and revive the still-slow economic recovery. In the aftermath of last month's school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Cuomo and the Democrat-led Assembly are pushing for bans on all assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Cuomo's other priorities will include his effort to legalize casinos off Indian land and another to restrict the New York City Police Department's stop-and-frisk procedures that critics say impinge on civil rights.
