Crime Should Not Pay

All across New York State, law-abiding citizens have been tightening their belts, cutting spending and foregoing even the smallest luxuries. Everyone has had to sacrifice in these difficult economic times---everyone except those individuals who have broken the law, and are now incarcerated in our State’s prisons.

As the cost of living continues to climb for New Yorkers, so does the cost of incarcerating, rehabilitating and providing health care for New York’s prison inmates.

Crime Should Not Pay

As a member of the New York State Senate Committee on Crime Victims, Crime, and Corrections, Senator Nozzolio has fought hard to keep New York State’s inmates accountable for their crimes.

Senator Nozzolio has sponsored legislation (S.2404) that would allow New York State to collect a small healthcare copayment for those who could afford to pay. This copayment would discourage fraud and abuse of the healthcare benefits that prisoners enjoy.

A Return To Common Sense

Growing up in a working class family with mom, dad, and my two brothers, we didn’t have the best of everything. We did, however, learn very early how to stretch a dollar and the value of hard work and sacrifice. We never felt deprived. When times were tough, my parents, especially my mother, who was the money manager of the family, taught us invaluable and common sense lessons about ways to save money.

New York State could take a lesson from my mother. Times are tough in New York State and it's time to use common sense when it comes to state spending.
