What’s at Issue
Potential areas of concern or areas for improvement or reform:
♦ Text revisions and updates: Elimination of obsolete, defective or superseded provisions in the New York State Constitution (adopted in 1894) or those in conflict with the US Constitution
♦ “Home Rule”: Issue of the proper balance between state and local government, such as should Albany or your County decide whether to allow Uber in your neighborhood, raise sales taxes, make civil service rules, including pension requirements or collective bargaining agreements
♦ Court Reform: Opportunity to modernize and streamline New York’s Court system
♦ Environmental Protections: Opportunity to seek State clean air and clean water protections
This is an important matter put to New York State voters only once every 20 years. It is designed to give every generation a voice. It will be up to us…We the People… to accept or reject any proposed amendments at the end of this 3-year process.
The choice is ours so it is important to make an informed decision. Contact your State or local government representative for more information.
