One of Kathy Hochul’s focuses is to create a new culture free of toxicity in Albany, and lawmakers are hoping for a fresh start with her.
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie met with Hochul and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, already marking a change with two women and a man meeting instead of three men.

A report is expected to be available soon.
