Governor Paterson Touts Website Outlining Government Spending

09.02.09 | FL News Team

Governor Paterson is launching a new website so New Yorkers can keep track of government spending. Governor Paterson says the website, Taxpayer.ny.gov, would allow residents to follow efforts to cut spending and improve government services. The governor says the website would shed sunlight on "the business as usual practices" in Albany. Governor Paterson touts his efforts so far this year to better use taxpayer dollars in reducing state travel, merging state operation, and signing a local government consolidation law.
