June 11, 2013. Frank Mauro of the Fiscal Policy Institute joined with community, student and labor groups at a press conference in the Legislative Office Building in Albany to urge the Legislature to reject the Governor’s ill-conceived Tax-Free NY proposal. The press conference was organized by Ron Deutsch, the executive director of New Yorkers for Fiscal Fairness.
Mauro distributed FPI’s new report on the Tax-Free NY proposal at the press conference which was covered by a number of news outlets including the (Albany) Times Union, the Legislative Gazette and several television and radio stations.
