New York state environmental officials have proposed lifting a ban on drilling for natural gas on private land except in the New York City and Syracuse watersheds. A ban would continue on all state-owned lands. The Department of Environmental Conservation will give its revised recommendations on hydraulic fracturing to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday, the same day an executive order prohibiting fracking expires. The ban would continue while the DEC's recommendations undergo several months of public comment and revisions.

BURLINGTON, N.J. - Gov. Christie says he had a three-word reaction last week to a proposal to raise Port Authority tolls: "You're kidding, right?" Christie says years of mismanagement led to the current situation. But Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo haven't made a decision on whether to veto the toll hikes. Christie says the two are consulting regularly, going over the numbers and working toward a consensus. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey last week proposed raising tolls by $4 next month on the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln and Holland tunnels.

WASHINGTON - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo emerged Monday from meetings with top administration officials and congressional leaders "optimistic" that Congress will act quickly to provide tens of billions of dollars to help his state recover from Sandy, one of the Northeast's most destructive storms. "People are still reeling from this trauma and New York needs help," Cuomo said after meeting with Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii); Sen. Thad Cochran (R., Miss.)

President Obama returned to Washington on Sunday and quietly signed legislation authorizing $9.7 billion in preliminary relief for Hurricane Sandy victims. Congress passed the measure Friday while Obama was vacationing with his family in Hawaii. The $9.7 billion for flood insurance is only a piece of the $60 billion sought by states hit hard by the October storm. Northeastern lawmakers, still angry that the full package was sent back to the legislative starting line last week, anticipate a much tougher fight over the remaining aid. New Jersey Gov. Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have called the $9.7 billion "just a down payment," and said in a joint statement, "it is now time to go even further and pass the final and more complete clean disaster-aid bill.

Andrew Cuomo runs for governor NEW YORK - New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo declared his candidacy for governor Saturday, delivering a full-throated call for political reform and pledging to make the notoriously dysfunctional state government more accountable to its citizens. With his famous father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, standing nearby, the younger Cuomo cast himself as a populist crusader who would lead a "citizens coalition" to restore integrity to state government.

T HE FLYERS LOGO just got Simpsonized. Mark Avery-Kenny, a designer at AK47 Studios, didn't let the fact that ratings for the animated TV series "The Simpsons" are at an all-time low deter him from incorporating characters from the show into some of the more recognizable logos from the NHL. And he did it just in time for the Stanley Cup finals, featuring the Los Angeles Kings against the New York Rangers. The Kings logo shows Fat Tony wearing a crown and holding a cigar. The Rangers logo depicts a smiling Lisa.

Federal housing chief Andrew Cuomo has vowed an end to waste, fraud and abuse in his agency. His dawdling over canceling one program that has been abused for years makes that pledge seem less credible. If Mr. Cuomo means what he said in May 1997 about fixing the Title I home-repair program, he should issue an immediate administrative order to end contractor-originated loans made under it. Plenty of evidence exists to support that move - including the admission by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

ALBANY, N.Y. - Demonstrators for and against same-sex marriage in New York chanted, sang, and sought out TV cameras Monday while the state Senate again came to no resolution on the issue in a closed-door session that barely touched on the nationally divisive topic. After a three-hour conference behind doors, as groups from each side waited in a stifling hallway, the Senate's majority Republicans, pressed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to back the measure, emerged without comment. A vote within the conference to even move the bill to the floor for final legislative approval was pushed to at least Tuesday as private negotiations continued between Republican Senate leader Dean Skelos and Cuomo, who has made same-sex marriage a major initiative.

HARTFORD, Conn. - The workweek opened with a white-knuckle ride Monday in the snow-clobbered Northeast as drivers encountered unplowed streets, two-lane roads reduced to a single channel, and snowbanks so high it was impossible see around corners. After the epic storm swept through much of New England and New York on Friday and Saturday, dumping 1 to 3 feet of snow, most schools remained closed Monday. About 130,000 homes and businesses were still waiting for the electricity to come back on, down from a peak of 650,000.

Though he can explain it in calm, rational terms, James Sheehan said it still feels odd to be unemployed after 31 years of public service. In July, Sheehan, 59, arguably the nation's best known prosecutor of health-care fraud and the longtime former civil-division chief with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Philadelphia, was asked by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign his most recent position as New York Medicaid Inspector General. As he did in Philadelphia, Sheehan created headlines in New York with highly publicized probes and settlements, recovering more than $1.2 billion in improper Medicaid payments in his four years there and avoiding paying $2 billion more.

Gov. Christie had a three-word reaction to a proposal last week to raise Port Authority tolls: "You're kidding, right?" Calling it a testament to years of mismanagement, the Republican governor said there was no reason the region should be in the situation where such hefty toll hikes were warranted. Now that it is, he and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo must decide whether to stop the increases, as the governors have veto authority over the proposal. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has proposed raising tolls by $4 next month on the George Washington Bridge and all tunnels the authority operates, including the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.

NEW YORK - The floats were there, the music and dancing, too - all the usual staples of one of the world's oldest and largest gay-pride parades. But this year, something new joined the spectacle on the streets of New York City: proposals and wedding plans. New York's parade turned into a carnivallike celebration of same-sex marriage Sunday as hundreds of thousands of revelers rejoiced at the state's new law giving gay couples the same marital rights as everyone else. "We've been waiting to get married in Central Park for years, and now we got here just in time for history to be made," said Bryce Croft of Kettering, Ohio, who attended the festivities with her partner, Stephanie Croft.
