Public health advocates are calling on the governor and legislature to "have a heart" this Valentine's Day. Seventeen organizations got together at the state capitol to protest proposed cuts in the budget. Cuomo's plan calls for a 20-percent cut to funding, which already saw a 20-percent cut last year. Kristina Wieneke, Public Policy Director for the American Lung Association of New York, and Caitlin O’Brien, Government Relations Director for the American Heart Association of New York, explain the concerns.
