Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,I,C Batavia) wrote to Governor Andrew Cuomo, urging action on mandate relief. The assemblyman said that the state Senate and Assembly must be convened as soon as possible to address this issue that is crushing local governments and school districts.
As representatives of New York state, we all are shirking our duties by our inaction regarding the financial position we have put local governments in by not instituting true mandate relief, said Hawley in his letter to the governor. I am asking you to reconvene both houses of the Legislature immediately to begin the arduous task of reducing the burden on local governments and taxpayers.
