Paterson on 'Hardcore Cutting' and Public Authorities


Here’s David Paterson at the A.B.N.Y. breakfast yesterday morning, offering up a critique of spending in public authorities across the state.

“There are 640 public authorities in this state, only 11 of them regulated by a public authority control boards,” he said. “Maybe we should find out what the other 629 do. Because they consume billions of your and my dollars in taxes every year.”
