Learn more about Electronic Bills Amendment

The 2014 New York Electronic Bills Amendment would require that all bills presented before the State Legislature be presented in electronic form via tablet or laptop. Each year the New York State Legislature spends over $325,000 per year printing 19 million pages of materials during the legislative sessions. This is required under the New York State Constitution which requires the paper format and bans the use of electronic documents. This bill would amend the state constitution and overturn this requirement.  See recent Electronic Bills Amendment news
