Join Senator Maziarz’s efforts to protect your tax dollars!

Yes Senator, I agree with you that public assistance should not be used to purchase items such as alcohol, lottery tickets and cigarettes, and by signing this petition I encourage the State Assembly to pass the Public Assistance Integrity Act.

The Public Assistance Integrity Act (S.966) was approved on February 4, 2014 in the State Senate by a wide margin.  It was also passed in the Senate in 2012 and 2013. 

Senator Maziarz Calls on Assembly: Pass Public Assistance Integrity Act

The Public Assistance Integrity Act will protect your tax dollars and a vital program that provides money to families in need. Senator George Maziarz explains how recipients are abusing public assistance benefits for adult lifestyle choices. The Federal Government gave NY a mandate to take measures to stop welfare fraud or lose $122 Million in TANF funding.
