Under the currently proposed “Campaign Finance Reform” plan New York State would be forcedto spend over $200 million in taxpayer money to fund political campaigns every year. That’s over$200 million that could instead be spent on investing in schools, fixing our roads, or restoring the Governor’s cuts to the developmentally disabled.
Even worse, taxpayers would be required to fund negative TV commercials, annoying robocalls and candidates expenditures for groceries, gas, babysitters, and personal cell phone bills, all while being forced to shell out their tax dollars to candidates they may not support.
Animal abusers are heinous people who hurt and kill animals that are incapable of defending themselves. An individual who would hurt an animal should be punished severely and creating a State animal registry will ensure they are not able to own more possible victims of their future violence.
You may be entitled to some of the over $10.5 billion in unclaimed funds in New York State.
For your protection, banks, insurance companies, utilities, investment companies and many other businesses are required by State law to surrender inactive accounts to the State. These accounts are known as "lost," "abandoned" or "unclaimed" funds.
