WIll the State Review Office be eliminated?
The effort to eliminate the New York State Review Office continues. Here’s a link to the bill introduced in the Assembly on January 5, 2011. There was a legislative effort to eliminate the SRO last year. This bill is evidence of at least some sentiment in favor of the elimination of the office. The climate is certainly ripe. Putting aside any considerations of the absence in fairness at the SRO, the SRO is an unnecessary expenditure. It is not mandated by federal law and thus, it should be an easy target and a sensible one for cost cutting in these tough economic times.
