Clean New York Government, Strong Democracy We seek ethical NY State and City governments, an end to pay to play politics and fair elections. 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.
