Cuomo said he's waiting for an opinion from his appointed health commissioner, Dr. Nirav Shah.
In March, Shah said he planned to make the recommendation to Cuomo "within weeks."
"As recently as a month ago we got new data from Texas and Wyoming, and until I am comfortable with the state of the science, I am withholding my recommendation," Shah said Monday.
"Science needs to be done in a sacred place ... to understand both sides of the issue," said Shah, who also hasn't made any public updates on his research. "The process needs to be transparent at the end, not in the middle."
