ALBANY -- Fifteen minutes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo today announced a new plan to crack down on cell phone use, his aides emailed around copies of the actual legislation being proposed by the governor.
But more than a week after Cuomo announced what he called one of the most sweeping set of ideas to help the upstate economy in at least a generation, getting a look at that plan's legislation is a bit more challenging since the governor has not submitted any bill on the matter.Lawmakers and groups representing everyone from corporate to academic interests are still wondering about many details of the plan Cuomo first announced more than a week ago in Albany -- and at nine subsequent events since then -- to let businesses locate on state and private college campuses without having to pay any taxes, including state income taxes for employees.
The where-is-the-bill situation has become typical for major ideas put forth by Cuomo. His routine on many issues is announce an idea and then work out the details, or not, with lawmakers and special interest groups behind closed doors at the Capitol.
