Cuomo Outlines Fiscal Fix
(Wall Street Journal) — Promising to “reinvent government,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday said he would guide the state out of the throes of fiscal waste and scandal and bring to an end what he described as an aberrant chapter of state history. Delivering his first State of the State speech, Mr. Cuomo offered only a glimpse of what he’s termed an “emergency” fiscal agenda. He underlined the need for a new collaborative process and incentives for fixing the problems, borrowing policy ideas from Wisconsin and the Obama administration. Mr. Cuomo promised a more efficient flow of public dollars, but he said little about what he intends to cut out of a sprawling government that’s running out of cash.
