    State Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald will also be at the forum. They will participate in a discussion about fortifying transportation, energy and water systems and ensuring that billions in federal recovery money is spent properly.

    Real estate developers are interested in hearing whether lawmakers plan to protect them from a 2.5 percent affordable housing fee when a moratorium expires in June.
