State Senator Greg Ball and Assemblyman Steve Katz are once again asking Governor Cuomo to do a forensic audit of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The lawmakers believe that now, before the governor appoints a new MTA chairman and chief executive officer, is the right time to have the authority’s finances publicly reviewed for corruption and waste. Cuomo will be appointing the person who succeeds the outgoing Jay Walder.

BREWSTER — 12/7/2011– After years of leading the charge to repeal the MTA payroll tax, I am thrilled with the governor’s plan. With that being said, I will continue with my demands for forensic accounting to protect blue collar families like mine who are struggling. This tax cut for the middle class is exactly the shot in the arm working families need and is a great jobs focused package that begins to adjust our unfair tax code, while eliminating the job killing MTA payroll tax for the vast majority of payers. Now more than ever we must remain focused on job creation and push even harder moving into 2012 to alleviate the tax burden for working families, seniors and small business owners. This is a great first step towards that goal!
