ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is heading to the nation's capital for a meeting with the state's Congressional delegation.
The Democrat's visit on Tuesday comes after the start of a new Congress in which Democrats control the House of Representatives.
Cuomo has called on Democrats in Washington to fight Republicans and President Donald Trump when it comes to their proposals for immigration, taxes and the environment.
The governor plans to return to Albany Tuesday night. State lawmakers will kick off their 2019 legislative session on Wednesday.
New York has 27 members in the House. Twenty-one are Democrats and six are Republicans.
