WOODBURY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to cover Sandy rebuilding efforts and the Sandy Hook massacre when he delivers his third State of the State address tomorrow.

Analysts say Cuomo could use the spotlight to pressure federal lawmakers into sending more Sandy aid money, or he could lay out a long-term plan for rebuilding infrastructure and preparing for future storms.

The governor could also make his case for outlawing assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, like those used in the Newtown school shooting. Past attempts at such measures were blocked by Republicans in the state Senate.

Political analysts say the governor is beginning his third year with a 70 percent approval rating, which will allow him to firmly put forth his agenda.

Cuomo's State of the State address is scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. and News 12 Long Island will have live coverage.
