New York State Pension Forfeiture Amendment Goes to the Voters

The New York State Legislature, in record speed, passed a proposed constitutional amendment that would strip government pensions from those public officials who are convicted of public corruption and other felonies.

The bi-partisan nature and the speed at which it was introduced and passed during two successive legislative sessions, is more evidence of the efficiency of the public referendum process.  It is also another reason why the legislative process works and a constitutional convention is a government boondoggle that will enrich the political elite at the expense of the taxpaying public.

The voters will decide it’s fate on November 7, 2017.
