Clean New York Government, Strong Democracy We seek ethical NY State and City governments, an end to pay to play politics and fair elections, including a New York State, publicly funded, small donor campaign finance system akin to New York City's. We advocate for strong. independent ethics and anti-corruption enforcement including an independent NYJCOPE and other measures to reduce corruption risk including controls on discretionary, off-budget, MOU based spending by the governor and legislature. Transparent, Sensible Business Subsidies – Clean Contracting NY State's $8B/Yr in taxpayer subsidies to businesses should be small, smart, fair, clean and open. Accountable Public Authorities and “Open MTA” NYS public authorities, like the MTA and Thruway, borrow 96% of state debt and spend $50B a year. They should be accountable and open. Open Government, Freedom of Information We are winning more open government, stronger FOIL, open data, online fiscal and spending transparency, open meetings, more robust ethics and lobbying disclosure and rules.
