Default Governor Cuomo plans to cut visitation in maximum security prisons.

A NY Times article disagrees with his choice.

A Bad Idea to Cut Prison Visitation

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York likes to trumpet his record as a criminal-justice reformer, pointing to the reduction in the state prison population and the closing of 13 prisons under his watch. A lot more needs to be done, but Mr. Cuomo has shown an understanding of the need for humane justice policies.
So it was all the more inexplicable that his budget for 2017-18 called for slashing family visiting hours at New York’s 17 maximum-security prisons, a hugely destructive move that would save the state budget a tiny amount of money....

Obviously if the savings are minimal, it's a bad idea. Visitation has been proven to be beneficial for everyone involved. That said...dang. In Cali we get two days a week already. I'd be thrilled if they added a Friday.
