A new state Legislature has just been sworn in. That means every action that needs legislative approval must be steered through the bill or oversight process, right from the beginning.
Do you have questions for state Senate President Steve Sweeney or newly elected Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin? Is there something you’ve wondered about the process, such as why some things make it to a vote and others don’t? Do you want to know something about the major issues that the state Legislature hopes to tackle in the next two years?
