    Gov. Andrew Cuomo and leaders of the Senate and Assembly say they've reached agreement on legislation making all viewing of child pornography online illegal.

    The bill was introduced by Sen. Martin Golden, a retired police officer, after the Court of Appeals upheld a challenge to the state's child pornography law last month.
    The legislation passed the Senate on May 15. Assemblyman Joe Lentol, co-sponsor, says the bill is expected to pass the Assembly this week.
