On this week's edition of New York NOW: The state budget is due at the end of March. We have the latest on where negotiations stand, and an update on marijuana legalization in New York.

Zach Williams from City & State NY and Marie French from POLITICO NY join us with the latest news and analysis.

Every local government in New York has until the end of the month to either approve a plan to change policing in their communities or lose state funding. Ava Ayers from the Government Law Center at Albany Law School has an update.

And local district attorneys in New York say the state's recent criminal justice reform laws have created a new need for more funding from the state. We'll explain with Monroe County DA Sandra Doorley, the president of the state DA's Association.
