"The Business Council and the Empire Center should be commended for their launch of 'Benchmarking New York,' as this new online resource will help taxpayers, business leaders, the media and elected officials have a greater appreciation of how government spends, taxes and borrows. By increasing public sector transparency and openness, Benchmarking New York empowers taxpayers in developing a more informed understanding of how their government works and, most importantly, the way it spends their hard-earned dollars."
