A new Siena College poll released yesterday (April 16) sheds light on some of the voter sentiments here in New York State.
According to that research, a majority of New York voters say the permanent property Tax Cap (64-22 percent), the ban on plastic bags (62-33 percent) and the elimination of cash bail for misdemeanors and non-violent felonies (55-38 percent) will be good for New York.
Oppositely, a strong majority think the banning of the release of mug shots (58-31 percent) will be bad for New York. Congestion pricing and requiring all online retailers to collect sales tax got mixed reviews.
By a nearly two-to-one margin (32-62 percent), voters oppose the Legislature increasing the Governor’s salary and by nearly three-to-one (23-63 percent), they oppose the public campaign finance plan included in the budget.
