New York State Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester) and Senator Diane Savino recently unveiled a report, citing more than $15 million dollars in wasteful government spending within the NYS Department of Corrections (DOCS) through overtime pay and administrative and housing costs. The report is the second in a series of investigations that Senator Klein's office is conducting into wasteful government spending this year.
“This report is clear - if we cut back on overtime, streamline back office operations and stop handing out free housing for superintendents at the Department of Corrections we can save millions of dollars for New York State," said Klein. "Let's stop talking in circles this budget season and take a serious look at the millions already on the state's books that we can cut to show New Yorkers that we can be as responsible with our checkbook as they've had to be with theirs this past year."
Senator Jeff Klein joins Westchester Residential Opportunities, Inc. in foreclosure town hall to review the foreclosure epidemic of 2009-10 and discuss how to combat the crisis.
