May 20, 2015: Blair Horner, education investment tax credit, property tax cap, Bruce Gyory

Blair Horner, NYPIRG’s Legislative Director, discusses what good-government groups are calling New York’s unfinished ethics agenda.

While the Governor wants to pass the newly renamed Parental Choice in Education Act (formerly called the Education Investment Tax Credit) before the end of session, the Alliance for Quality Education and other advocates say the state needs to focus more on public schools. Jasmine Gripper, the Legislative Coordinator for the Alliance for Quality Education, explains.

E.J. McMahon, the president of the Empire Center, looks at why many groups are calling for New York to make the 2 percent property tax cap permanent.

Finally, we speak with Manatt, Phelps & Phillps’ Bruce Gyory about four gaps he sees driving the 2016 elections here in NYS: the gender gap, the race gap, the affordability gap and the climate change gap.
