Until the state has a budget surplus, there shouldn't be any rebates. And how in the world can anyone justify a rebate for $300K! Must be the figure needed to include those NYC lawmakers. Only in a state run by Democrats could this happen.

Rebates? Am I missing something? They're talking about cutting medicaid for the disabled, cutting school funding and imposing more crushing mandates. Where is the money for these rebates coming from?
