Bigger Better Bottle Bill part of NY Tax Cut Plan!

On June 12, 2006, Democratic candidate for governor Eliot Spitzer on Monday proposed a $6 billion property tax cut in New York.  The tax cuts would be made possible by a number of changes to the state budget, and an increased reliance on other sources of income.  According to the Associated Press, there were 26 steps to the three-year plan, but one was to boost revenue by $180 million in the first year by expanding the bottle bill to include non-carbonated drinks and a provision for the state to keep unclaimed deposits.
