In his tenth State of the State address, Cuomo's team believes the governor made announcements that will advance his bold agenda and continue to keep New York as the most progressive state in America.

During Wednesday's speech, the Governor discussed many initiatives for 2020 including legalizing marijuana, improving health care and tax cuts for both the middle class and small businesses.

Critics are disappointed he only briefly mentioned the state's $6 billion budget gap and failed to mention changes to the state's controversial bail reform laws.

During his speech, Cuomo brought up the Hudson Valle and threw his support for Legoland New York in Goshen which he says will bring 1,300 jobs to the region.

"Legoland Coming to the Hudson Valley. 1,300 jobs! I love Legoland! Yes, kids, that is your next vacation! We are going to Legoland," Cuomo said during his 2020 State of the State address.

Legoland will be the largest new tourist attraction New York State has seen in the last 30 years, according to Cuomo.

Legoland New York will hold its grand opening on July 4th, 2020. It will be the biggest Legoland theme park Merlin Entertainments has ever built, officials say. The Goshen-based amusement park will have more than 50 rides, shows and attractions across seven themed “lands” on 150 acres.
