Anti-Violence Program Defunded

Season 2011 Episode 44 | 26m 46s

Legislators from ten New York cities ask Gov. Cuomo to restore funding to Operation SNUG ('guns' spelled backwards), which advocates say makes a positive impact by enlisting ex-convicts in preventing gun violence among high-risk youth and young adults. Also, Ben Lawsky, Department of Financial Services superintendent, discusses the merger of state banking and insurance regulatory departments.
