State health officials are carefully monitoring this novel coronavirus, and we are prepared. The current risk to New Yorkers is low. If you are concerned you might be ill, please follow the @HealthNYGov  guidance:

Government doesn’t like to invest in infrastructure because it’s hard, it’s expensive, it’s risky, it can go wrong. But if you stop building, you get passed by. This year we're expanding our building program by $25 billion, bringing the total to a record $275 billion.

My Executive Budget includes legislation to permanently ban fracking in NYS. New York's leadership on hydraulic fracturing protects the environment, our drinking water, and our health. We must make the ban permanent.

I'm announcing legislation to safely legalize e-bikes and e-scooters statewide. The legal confusion around e-bikes & scooters has placed an unfair burden on working-class people for too long. These regulations will provide clarity while putting safety first.

The Census counts and calibrates the voice of New York. And our voice cannot be diminished. NY is committing $70 million for outreach so that every New Yorker, regardless of their background or citizenship status, is counted. Let's get to work. #Census2020  #GetNYCounted 

Wishing a happy Lunar New Year to NY's Asian and Pacific Island communities and to all who celebrate! May the #YearOfTheRat  bring happiness, peace and good fortune.

One year ago today we enacted #GENDA , adding gender identity and gender expression as protected classes under state law, and banned conversion therapy. NYS will always fight for justice and full equality for the #LGBTQ  community!

Tomorrow I'll depart for Poland to represent NY at the commemoration of the 75th anniv of Auschwitz’s liberation & honor the 6 million victims of the Shoah. After a wave of anti-Semitic attacks, it's more important than ever to show our solidarity & renew our vow to #NeverForget

New York will not demonize diversity. We will not stand by as 42,000 NYers are deported. If President Trump rescinds #DACA , we will sue.

Good riddance. It’s not like @realDonaldTrump  paid taxes here anyway... He’s all yours, Florida.

If the goes bankrupt because of the State of New York, they'll be in my thoughts and prayers. I'll see you in court.

Today a gunman terrorized an elementary school. Last week a gunman slaughtered a church congregation. Last month, a gunman massacred people at a concert. This cannot be the new normal. When will Congress act?

Today I am announcing legislation to remove all firearms from those who commit any domestic violence crimes.

People of France, tonight she shines for you. #frenchelection
