ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will travel to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday for a meeting with Republican President Donald Trump to discuss how recent federal tax changes are hurting the state's bottom line.

The Democratic governor told reporters on Monday that he'll urge the president to reconsider a provision in the recent tax overhaul that sharply limits a federal deduction for state and local taxes a change that he says is prompting some wealthy residents to leave New York.

Gov. Cuomo said estimated income from state and local tax payments from New Yorkers is $2.3 billion less than predicted.
