After years of waiting, New Yorkers on Long Island and upstate will finally be able to take advantage of ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft as soon as this summer. The bill was passed in April's state budget and we take a deep dive into the legislation including how it may affect the traditional taxi cab industry. Also, we discuss the just-passed American Health Care Act.
