Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered his annual State of the State Address to lawmakers in Albany on Wednesday on the first day of the legislative session.

Cuomo says he's planning to sue the federal government over recent changes to the tax law.

During his State of the State Address, the governor said the tax plan unfairly targets New Yorkers and is unconstitutional.  Cuomo compared the changes to a "double taxation" since people can't deduct taxes paid at the state and local level.

New York State is already looking at a $4 billion budget deficit and faces an additional $2 billion in federal cuts.

The governor discussed ongoing efforts aimed at curbing sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace as well as criminal justice reform.

Cuomo also said more needs to be done to help the homeless, protect the environment, and boost infrastructure.
