While going through all of our footage from yesterday, I noticed our videographer Brian Flynn caught a lighter moment during yesterday's at-times awkward transition of power in the senate chamber.

Yesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo said he hopes the "reunification" of the senate Democrats happens next year.   Right now a breakaway group of five that co-govern the chamber along with the Republicans are caught in the middle of Cuomo's new desire to have his party control the state senate.

  Both houses of state government have introduced a series of bills to deal with the growing problems associated with the drug heroin. With less than a month left in the legislative session, advocates are hoping a deal can be reached before lawmakers go home for the calendar year.
