Governor Cuomo has named a commission to recommend changes to the state's tax system. Former Comptroller H. Carl McCall heads up the panel of the usual cast of characters.
Making the system more "fair" is easier said than done.
I doubt there is any representation by people in small business and certainly folks like Mr. McCall are smart people well marinated in the political culture of NY.
Meanwhile a report was released today criticising state and local governments in NY, saying they have unsustainable structural budgets.
With state government leaning more to the left as a result of the 2012 election, don't look for many changes to come out of this debating club.
