This Week From Albany

Members of the New York Assembly pass legislative bills in the Assembly Chamber at the Capitol in Albany June 16.

The New York state Legislature will be in session for 60 days in 2017, according to the session calendar released by the state Assembly and Senate leadership Thursday. 

The 2017 legislative session will convene on Wednesday, Jan. 4. That will be the first of nine session days in January and it could be the day when Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivers his State of the State address. 

The day of the annual speech hasn't been announced. 

Legislators have a quiet February planned with only five sessions on the calendar. That will be the calm before the storm since March will be a busy month for lawmakers. With the budget due by the end of the day March 31, the state Assembly and Senate will be in session for 17 days in March.
