Who Voted to Sweep $750 Million From the Power Authority Into the General Fund?

George D. Maziarz

February 03, 2009

Not Senator Maziarz.  Three-quarters of a billion dollars could have been used to lower utility rates for homeowners and businesses.  Instead it's treated as a surplus and just given away.  That's not right, and that's why Senator Maziarz voted NO.

Below is the voting history from February 3, 2009.  Unfortunately, the measure was approved and Governor Paterson signed the bill into law the next day.
