ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has postponed his state-of-the-state address for two weeks until Jan. 21 at the Empire State Convention Center in Albany.
Officials announced the changed date Friday.
The annual address describing initiatives for the coming year was scheduled for Wednesday. Cuomo’s father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, died Thursday evening.
At his inaugural address earlier Thursday, the current governor said his agenda includes restoring public trust in the criminal justice system, creating a better education system and providing economic opportunity for everyone.
He and leaders of the state Senate and Assembly say the 2015 session of the Legislature will convene Wednesday as required by the state constitution.
