State can aid local governments

May 2, 2013

We hope the recent breakthrough between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and elected officials from cities and school districts across the state isn’t fool’s gold....

Rs, if you change 'The answer would better be had in making sure the taxpayer money is handled from the get-go...etc' to 'making sure LESS taxpayer money is handled from the get-go...etc' I would agree with you.

The state should stop telling the local governments how much they must pay local judges and the district attorney.a county with a population of 55,000 can not afford the same as a county with apopulation of 200,000. Then when the state has money passed to it for certain programs the state should not pass those costs on to the local governments. But the state does not want to do what is best for the state taxpayer. The state should also make the property tax cap a real cap with no end run to get higher taxes.

Sorry to put this on this thread, but did anyone else find the lead article here to be just a little funny? I mean "Mr. Ding-A-Ling harassed by Sno Kone Joe" deserves to be on Leno. don't ya think?

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration lashed out at North Korea and called for the immediate release of an American citizen sentenced by Pyongyang this week to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly committing "hostile acts" against the isolated communist country. Or else what? Another red line? Might as well just pack up and go home... golly!

State aid for mandates in schools is better paid from state taxes vs. by the property owner, the true victim of the discriminatory school taxes. The state kitty has a lot more contributors than the local school districts. Let's spread the pain.

TiredOfTax, thank you for interpreting someone elses argument.

Evidently you are looking to once again hijack a comment thread to go your way instead of looking at the actual content of others' comments.

Ummmm, rschweizer, I believe that the way Disco typed it he means taxpayer relief from mandates... that actually means less taxpayer money, as in your and mine, right? I actually did an unliberal like act, I read the posts.

Disco, you realize that when you say 'Such $ relief' from the State, you actually mean taxpayer money, as in your and mine, right?

The answer would better be had in making sure the taxpayer money is handled from the get-go at the very bottom level before it gets lost in the beaurocracy, so that the governor doesn't need to make these types of announcements saying that the guys at the local are going to get money that they put in from the beginning at the bottom.
