Making Sense of Mandates

As Governor Cuomo takes action, WXXI News investigates unfunded mandates in New York state and their impact locally beginning Monday.

WXXI’s news team will look at why these mandates are costing New York's taxpayers so much money, and who might suffer if they are lifted. The full week of programming kicks off Monday during NPR's Morning Edition on WXXI-AM1370. Click Here for more info in the WXXI News Special Coverage Section.

Governor Andrew Cuomo just named his new Mandate Relief Redesign Team following on his promise to do so in his State of the State address. Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks is part of the group that met for the first time via conference call Friday.
