Behind the scenes of Albany's busy week

Listen to this story
Last week was a big one for policy-makers in New York's capitol city.

Lawmakers passed a reset of the state's income tax code, including higher taxes on the wealthy and a break for the middle-income earners. It was a change of position on Gov. Andrew Cuomo's part. It also required a reversal -- almost unanimous -- from Republican legislators.

Then came a slick celebration to announce the winners of major regional economic development awards.

Presiding over all was Cuomo, just approaching the end of his first year in office. Albany correspondent Karen DeWitt joined Martha Foley to talk about how the politics and the policies fit together.
