State Senator Joe Griffo Calls For End To Unfunded Mandates
One local lawmaker is attempting to lessen the burden faced by municipalities because of unfunded mandates.
State Senator Joe Griffo says he is sponsoring a bill that prevents Albany from creating mandates without also providing funding to pay for them.
The lawmaker also called for a moratorium on mandates until the legislation is passed into law.
Griffo calls the legislation "common sense" and says it gives communities a chance to reduce costs and keep taxes down.
