Senate dysfunction returns

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on


It's been almost a decade since the "Senate Coup" brought a stalemate to the chamber, but the old days may be coming back.

Republican Tom Croci's decision to return to active duty in the U.S. Navy means the State Senate has an equal number of members in both conferences.  If the 31 senators on both sides of the aisle vote along party lines, nothing will get passed. 

Dave Lombardo of the Times Union and Dan Clark of Politifact New York join the Reporters Roundtable this week to analyze the dramatic events that took place inside the Capitol.

Also, we'll hear from Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie as his Democratic conference looks into the possible legalization of sports betting and marijuana.

Tune  in as we recap a busy week in Albany.
