Assemblyman Tedisco pushes state legislature to go paperless

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – Monday is Earth Day, and that has a local assemblyman renewing his push to have the state legislature go paperless.

Republican Jim Tedisco is hoping to get a bill passed that would make all future bills be sent digitally to lawmakers instead of relying on paper copies.

He says it will save millions of taxpayer dollars and reduce waste.

If this sounds familiar, Tedisco co-sponsored a similar bill back in 2011. It passed the assembly, but didn't go much further.

A new version is currently in the senate judiciary committee, but no action, so far, in the assembly.
