Track How YOUR Casino Dollars are Spent

Niagara Falls recently received an $89 million check from New York State as the City's share of casino revenue.  To ensure accountability and transparency, Senator Maziarz and the Niagara Falls City Council are teaming up to provide you with accounting of how this money is spent.

When the Council approves spending, you will know!

The Casino Revenue, both the current amount and that which the City receives each year, can only be spent through City Council approval.  After each Council meeting, where casino funds are appropriated, a new report will be published, providing YOU with details of how each dollar is spent.

The bi-monthly expenditures can be viewed on Senator Maziarz's website.

SUNY2020 plan lays groundwork for public higher education

For the first time in the history of the State University of New York (SUNY), students and families will be able to properly plan for the cost of a college education in a predictable manner. The NYSUNY 2020 plan, enacted into law at the end of the recently-concluded Legislative Session, will allow each State University of New York and City University of New York (SUNY and CUNY) campus to raise tuition by $300 per year for five years. This plan replaces an era of dramatic tuition increases with a system that is predictable and empowers students and parents to plan for college expenses.

Senate must pass bill to unlock "Green Jobs" potential

If there are glimmers of recovery in New York’s economic outlook, Buffalonians aren’t seeing them. Approximately 43,700 Buffalo Niagara residents were unemployed in September, many of them among the ranks of the long-term jobless.

But now, some hope! Recently, New York State Assembly members approved “on-bill recovery,” an energy efficiency financing tool that will help create 60,000 new jobs across the state. The Senate now returns to Albany and it must act in a bipartisan fashion to pass this important legislation.
