Cuomo's new budget could bring sweeping changes to North Country

Listen to this story
Governor Andrew Cuomo laid out a spending plan for New York state today that's designed to cut more than 2 billion dollars in deficits. The plan includes hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts from state programs, while also using new revenue from a higher tax bracket for wealthy New Yorkers.

Brian Mann joined Nora Flaherty on the line to talk about Cuomo's speech.
