Now more than ever we need to dramatically reform our state government. That is why, I have introduced a comprehensive plan that will institute the necessary changes and help make our state government function more effectively. My “Blueprint for A Stronger NY” will instill the highest level of fiscal responsibility, accountability and transparency in our state government.
Highlights of the "Blueprint For A Stronger New York" include:
• Creation of a constitutional spending cap that would limit state spending to the Consumer Price Index or 4 percent on year to year basis.
• Establishment of an Independent Budget Office to provide a nonpartisan, clear and concise picture of the state finances on a on-going basis.
• Require a two-thirds supermajority for any tax increase considered by the State Legislature.
• Fundamental ethics reform to effectively and proactively combat instances of corruption.
• Break the practice of influence peddling by requiring reasonable disclosure requirements for campaign consultants who also engage in lobbying practices.
• Strengthen the voice and empower voters through the establishment of Initiative and Referendum.
