NEW YORK (CBS 2 / WCBS 880) – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will be in New York City Thursday night to swear in his new Attorney General, Eric Schniederman.

On Wednesday, he was in Albany, delivering his very first State of the State Address. Breaking with tradition, Cuomo delivered the speech in public at the Albany Convention Center and not the Legislature.

The newly-elected governor planned to tackle a $10 billion budget deficit without raising property taxes. His emergency budget plan includes redesigning the state’s Medicaid program.

He will allow the millionaire’s tax to expire.

A spending cap, wage freeze for state workers and a cap on property taxes were also included.

“They’ve seen the ugly. They’ve seen the gridlock. They’ve seen the corruption. Let them see how beautiful government can be when it cooperates and it’s enlightened,” Cuomo said.

The governor cited Westchester County as having the highest property taxes in the country and said that needs to end.

He will detail the specifics of his budget on February 1.
