Cuomo proposes local government efficiency plan

Cuomo proposes local government efficiency plan

Specifically, the plan includes strengthening legislation that will protect senior homeowners with reverse mortgages, establishing an Elder Abuse Certification Program for banks located in New York State, and amending the banking law to empower banks to place holds on potentially fraudulent transactions. Looking to consolidate local government services, Cuomo called on county officials to develop localized plans to consolidate or share services that would be put to taxpayers for a vote in November. This liability already applies to in-state and out-of-state corporations, and to in-state LLCs, but not to out-of-state LLCs.

One issue the governor wants to focus on is making voting easier by giving New Yorkers the option of doing it ahead of time.

It would add 350 miles to the existing the Hudson River Valley Greenway and Erie Canalway when it's completed.

New York State Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said, "Governor Cuomo clearly understands that clean drinking water is essential to public health". As these ongoing efforts continue to identify new challenges, it is clear that the need for new infrastructure is far greater than currently-available resources.

"Division, anger, discrimination doesn't work in New York", Cuomo said. "My message is upstate NY matters and it's not right or fair that upstate doesn't have this new innovation that spurs the economy, can save money and save lives".

In announcing the proposal, Cuomo cited the recent fake account scandal at Wells Fargo as the kind of action that could get a person banned from working in financial services under the new rule.

"We've made remarkable social and economic progress all across the board", the governor said in delivering the address at the University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts in Amherst. "And this nation needs to hear that message today".

"This will require that the same consumer protections be provided to all homeowners, regardless of the lending product they utilize", Gov. Cuomo's office said in a statement. Instead, he said he wanted to take his message directly to the people by giving six regional addresses.
