Issue Forum: Unfunded State Mandates and Mandate Relief
What are the impacts of unfunded mandates and what, if anything should or can be done?
Thursday, April 26, 7:30 PM RMS Multi-Purpose Room

The Rye, Rye Brook, & Port Chester League of Women Voters is sponsoring an Issue Forum regarding the topic of unfunded state mandates and mandate relief. The forum will address such questions as what is a mandate? What does "unfunded" actually mean? What are the impacts on county and local communities, education and taxpayers? What is Albany doing about unfunded mandates and is there any relief in sight?

The forum will be held on Thursday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Rye Middle School Multi-Purpose Room located at 3 Parsons Street in Rye. The event will feature a panel of experts who will present a broad range of perspectives on Albany's unfunded mandates including their ramifications on county, municipal and school district budgets. This event is designed to impart a better understanding of the issue and to facilitate an exchange of ideas for potential legislative relief and regulatory reform.
