Governor Cuomo is directing non-essential state government employees in the Capital Region to take Monday off.    

The directive applies to employees in state offices in Albany, Schenectady, Columbia, Greene, Fulton, Montgomery, Washington, Rensselaer, Ulster, Schoharie and Saratoga counties.    


He cited increasingly dangerous driving conditions resulting from snow and ice accumulation.    

The governor also lowered the speed limits on several state-owned roads.     

He also is urging anyone who must drive to "use extreme caution."
