Rochester, N.Y. – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered a speech at the University of Rochester’s Kilbourn Hall Thursday afternoon.
The centerpiece of the speech was fiscal responsibility and creating a business-friendly environment within the state.
Cuomo also spoke about the NY SAFE Act, abortion, equality for women in the workplace, among other topics.
“We want to pass a law in the state that doesn't advance anything but codifies a woman's right as decided and defined by the federal supreme court,” Cuomo said.
No law has been formally introduced, according to Cuomo’s staff.
The prospect of having casinos in upstate New York was on the Governor’s agenda.
“I want to clarify the law, change the constitution, acknowledge the reality, and let’s do it right, and let’s go into the casino business, let’s regulate it, and let’s get the revenues,” Cuomo said.
Lt. Governor, and former Rochester Mayor, Bob Duffy was also in attendance.
Cuomo’s speech in Rochester was his second of the day, as he delivered a similar speech in Buffalo earlier in the morning.
