The end of the annual legislative session in Albany usually culminates in a flurry of last-minute deal-making.
This time around, there doesn't seem to be movement on many issues that require big funding. As legislators race the clock to reach consensus on high-profile issues such as medical marijuana and the heroin epidemic, there are other meaningful bills under consideration with local and statewide impact also worth our attention.
1. Stop bills on the Freeport Armory and the Nassau "county guarantee"
2. Protect Long Island's water quality
3. Keep teacher evaluations in place
