Busy days ahead at the Capitol bring parking restrictions to the city

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Tuesday is going to be a busy day in the city.

Hundreds of advocates from across the state are making their way to the Capitol to make their case for funding in the state budget.

Hundreds of immigrants will gather in Albany for what’s known as Immigrant Day of Action. It’s also Rare Disease Awareness Day, where patients and family members of those with rare diseases will talk to lawmakers about the issues they face.

Stronger rent laws, ending workplace discrimination, and raising the criminal age of responsibility will also be the focus of rallies and press conferences in Albany today.

Wednesday will be even busier; it’s the Annual Lobby Day at the Capitol.

To prepare for Lobby Day, State St. will be closed to traffic between South Swan and Eagle St. at 6p.m. Tuesday, and lasts through 7:00p.m. Wednesday night.

Madison Ave. will be closed tomorrow from 7a.m. to 7p.m. Parking restrictions will also be in place beginning Tuesday night. Emergency no parking signs are up to alert motorists.
