Voters to decide to let state legislature go digital

The New York State Legislature could go completely digital if a proposition passes on Election Day. This November, voters will decide on
Proposition 2, which supporters say could save taxpayers $53 million every year. 17,000 proposals are printed for the 213 lawmakers over the course of a 2-year legislative session at a cost of $13 million per year. The State also pays another $40 million to dispose of it all, costing taxpayers a total of $53 million per year. If Proposition 2 passes, printing would be a last resort and every legislative bill would be a digital file only. Supporters say that the change could be implemented overnight as access is available online.
