ALBANY - This year's legislative session at the State Capitol in Albany is scheduled to end Thursday. Assembly and Senate members and the governor are still trying to agree on wording for a medicinal marijuana bill.

There are also outstanding issues ranging from a higher minimum wage to the Common Core curriculum in schools to women's rights.

There may be 11th hour agreements on some items Thursday or those issues may have to wait until next year as lawmakers leave the Capitol for the year.
