Subsidy-watcher Bettina Damiani writes in:

“Despite the hearing notice (in six point font in the New York Post’s classified) some Politicker readers may not know there’s a public hearing for the proposed subsidy to Goldman Sachs for its new headquarters in Battery Park City.

“Yes, yes, the Mayor, the Governor and the Assembly Speaker announced the deal’s been approved. But, don’t be fooled! There has to be a hearing, which is scheduled for next Wednesday. Sadly, the law doesn’t require the State to release any documents on the deal before the deal. “

Because, if Goldman Sachs doesn’t need a billion and a half dollars in public money, who does?
