Spitzer Proposes Sweeping Overhaul in Albany New York Times proposed to overhaul almost every corner of the state’s operations and policies, saying he would move swiftly to guarantee health insurance for all children in the state, publicly finance state elections, rein in spending and draft a constitutional amendment to overhaul the state’s courts. ...... broadly overhaul the state’s ethics and lobbying rules, to make pre-kindergarten available to all four-year-olds by the end of his four-year term, to overhaul the public authorities that control most of the state’s debt and to make New York more palatable to business by changing the state’s approach to policies, like workers’ compensation. ........ offered a dizzying template of the ambitious agenda he outlined during the campaign ....... many of the proposals laid out by Mr. Spitzer are not new to Albany, and have opponents with deep pockets. ...... special emphasis on political and campaign finance reform ...... “dramatically” lower limits on campaign contributions and an eventual move to full public financing of campaigns ........ “an independent, non-partisan redistricting commission” to draw the boundaries of legislative districts ...... the “first installment” of a three-year, $6 billion property tax cut focused on middle-class homeowners “whose property taxes are rising too fast for their incomes to catch up.”
