Historic week in the senate

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

For the first time in New York's history, a woman is now in charge of the Senate.

Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) officially became Senate Majority Leader Wednesday as Democrats now control the chamber with 39 members, 15 of which are new.  This week on the program we'll review the historic week with Karen DeWitt of New York State Public Radio.

Also, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone is our guest in-studio to discuss the big wins Democrats had on Long Island, his "Suffolk County Fairness Agenda," and if he has any interest in running for governor in 2022.

Join us this weekend on your local PBS station.
