Buffalo (WKBW):

In lieu of numerous sexual harassment scandals in the State Legislature, including the recent allegations against Former State Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for another harassment hotline. New York State already has two hotlines, one with the State Comptroller and one with the State Inspector General. Local Attorney Timothy Hoover believes there's still a lot more work that needs done to avoid situations like these.

"It seems like whatever has been done, they haven't found the right mix to get everyone's act cleaned up," said attorney Timothy Hoover.

The third line is expected to cost $200,000 dollars each year to operate. This is just one of many proposals the Governor will address during his 2014 budget reveal in Albany today. He's outlining the details of the budget which could include proposals he made during the State of the State address. Some items to keep a close eye on include: universal prekindergarten, medical marijuana and the Buffalo billion.
