    NYCOM's first "Issues in Focus" policy brief focuses on the proper use of New York State's $5.1 billion in bank settlement funds. NYCOM's report calls on the Governor and the State Legislature, when determining the allocation of such funds over the coming months, to do so according to three guiding principles:

    1. Use for Non-Recurring Expenses
    2. Invest in Municipal Infrastructure as the Foundation to Economic Development
    3. Use Existing Programs to Allocate Funds Widely, Efficiently and Fairly

    STOP THE TAX SHIFT
    Tax Shifting is Bad for New York

    The New York State Conference of Mayors created a single-issue website www.StopTheTaxShift.org, to defend taxpayers from tax shifts that may be pushed from the state onto cities and villages.

    Local officials and private citizens can and should use this site as a resource to help educate state leaders, legislators and opinion makers on those state mandates that are the key culprits in obstructing local officials efforts to control spending and property taxes.
