In a den of vipers

It’s just cute when criminals argue about one stealing stolen money from the other. While ‘fees’ are not exactly the same theft as straight out taxation, most ‘services’ for which fees are collected are just unnecessary.

The Legislature accepted two New York State Archives records management grants, which were to have totaled nearly $69,000 for the County Clerk’s Office and $64,000 for the Legislature Office and Information Technology Services.  The County, however, has been notified that the State will reduce all grants by 6 percent.  Legislator Frank Proto called the action, which he said compounds an earlier reduction of more than half-a-million dollars in available state archives grant “thievery by the State,” since those grants come from clerks’ fees, not from tax revenue.
