June 23, 2013.  A Gannett News Service article on the NYS legislature’s adoption of a somewhat revised version of Governor Cuomo’s “Tax-Free New York” quotes from FPI’s recent report on this proposal on this proposal:

“New York State’s past experience with geographically-targeted business tax incentives should raise huge red flags regarding the efficacy of the proposal as an economic development strategy,” according to a report last week from the Fiscal Policy Institute, a labor-backed think tank.

The article by Gannett’s Albany Bureau Chief Joe Spector was published by several Gannett newspapers: Ithaca Journal, Elmira Star-Gazette, Poughkeepsie Journal, and the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.
