The Assembly's budget review hearings continued with a look at spending on the arts- specifically, funding for the New York State Council on the Arts. This year the group got a big boost in funding to put towards increasing tourism and connecting arts and cultural organizations to businesses. Joining us to talk more about today's testimony is Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell, the chair of the Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development Committee. He also weighs in on the cases of sexual harassment in politics and the "wedding cake" SCOTUS case.
