NY Legislative Scorecard on Working Class Voting RecordsEdit
Executive Summary SnipEdit
The NY state legislature faces a host of choices critical to the middle class in 2006. Bills that would support the state's middle class, like the State Financial Incentive Protection Act and the Families in the Workplace Act, have been reintroduced this year and deserve passage by both houses. The legislature must also respond to Governor Pataki's budget proposals, from illogical tax incentives to punishing tuition increases at the state's public universities. A range of education, housing, taxation, health care, consumer and workplace issues of importance to the middle class will also be up for consideration.
