PRESS CONFERNCE TO OUTLINE ASSEMBLYMAN STEVE KATZ’ PLAN TO PUSH ALBANY INTO THE 21ST CENTURY
Plan Would Save New York State $2.5 Billion in Ten Years
WHO: New York State Assemblyman Steve Katz, 99th assembly district. Mr Katz is currently running for reelection to his seat, which has been redistricted as the 94th.
WHAT: While we all may agree that “Albany is Broken,” few leaders have a solution. Through a business owner’s eyes, Steve Katz observed the workings of the so-called “Albany Bill Mill” that drains the State’s finances and formulated a series of solutions. Dr. Katz will outline his plan to bring the Legislature into the 21st Century and save taxpayers over $100,000,000 per year. The plan will require several bills, a constitutional amendment and a reality check for Legislators. Objectives include:
ü A reduction in the number of bills before the legislature from 1,000 to less than 200 per year
ü A reduction in Legislator pay from $79,500 per anum to $45,000
ü A requirement that all bills have a companion bill in the opposite house before being introduced
ü A requirement that any bill requiring funding be accompanied with a fiscal impact statement
ü The elimination of Home Rule bills
ü The ability for members to vote on bills via computer at their District Offices
ü All bills meeting this criteria would be voted on by the entire Assembly
The above measures and others put forward by Dr. Katz would save the State more than $100,000,000 per year
WHERE: Somers Town Hall, 335 Route 202, Somers, New York
WHEN: TUESDAY JUNE 19, 2012 at 9:00 am
OFFERING: First look at Steve Katz’ overall plan and the opportunity to question him and his staff regarding logistics, democratic cosponsors he has recruited and/or targeted and the timing for each bill.
Post-press conference interviews can be arranged by contacting Kevin Mercuri (above media contact).
