Legislative session winding down
ALBANY -- The 2014 legislative session is winding down, but there are still a lot of work to be done.
One of the remaining issues in limbo at the moment is a bill to boost the minimum wage. The proposal would push the minimum from $8 an hour to $10.10, but cities like NYC would be allowed to go even higher, as much as $13.13 an hour.
Meanwhile, supporters of medical marijuana are hoping to see a deal reached on Monday. Both chambers must reach an agreement by midnight in order for a bill to be voted on before the end of the session.
