NEW YORK (AP) Never mind the doggie bag: Spot wants a seat at the outdoor table, or rather under it.

New York is considering whether to join a growing number of states that allow pet dogs at open-air eateries. After getting a unanimous OK from the state Senate, advocates are pressing its Assembly to sign on.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration on Friday ended its practice of automatically deleting emails after 90 days following criticism that it was an affront to open government.

Instead, administration staffers will manually delete emails as they choose — though emails containing certain important records will be retained longer.

Cuomo will also seek to introduce legislation that would close a loophole in existing law that largely exempts the state Senate and Assembly from existing open records laws, according to Bill Mulrow, a top Cuomo aide.

The University of Rochester Medical Center has sent letters to around 3400 patients informing them that a list containing patient information was shared with a local neurology practice.

Officials say that list was shared by a URMC nurse practitioner who did not have the authorization to do that. The list contained patient names, addresses, dates of birth and medical information. It did not have social security numbers or insurance details.
