LPNY Supports Lawsuit Against Corporate Welfare

On Dec. 7, 2009, the Libertarian Party of New York (LPNY) State Committee passed a resolution supporting a lawsuit seeking to end corporate welfare via the New York State Constitution.

"The LPNY endorses the Stop The Pork Lawsuit filed by Jim Ostrowski to enforce the prohibition in the State Constitution against grants or loans of state money to corporations," states the resolution. 

"This type of lawsuit could become infectious throughout the country. It sets the precedent for politicians who claim to adhere to the letter of the law at our ultimate financial determent, " says LPNY Chair Eric Sundwall

This lawsuit was presented by attorney James Ostrowski on Dec. 3 in Albany, NY on behalf of a group of concerned individuals.
