Voters to decide if state legislature goes paperless

ALBANY, N.Y. -- If Assemblyman Jim Tedisco gets his way, the New York State Legislature may soon go paperless.

Tedisco announced Friday that both houses of the legislature have passed a constitutional amendment that would enable the legislature to go digital.

The amendment would allow digital copies of legislation on a legislator's desk, cutting down on the hundreds of thousands pieces of paper.

The measure will be decided by voters on the ballot during the November 2014 general election.
