Divide NY amendment proposed in Assembly

ALBANY — A bill proposing a constitutional amendment to divide the state into three autonomous regions has been introduced by Assemblyman David DiPietro.

This amendment creates fully autonomous regions, with a state government with severely limited taxing power, at a rate of just 3 percent sales tax, with all other taxing power transferred to the regions. About 3/4 of NYS laws under the bill would become regional laws of each region and deleted from the state code; each region allowed then to independently modify or repeal them.
