Hi Gioia,

Looking at newspapers from last week.

Everyone  knows that NYState lawmakers rarely miss an opportunity to feather their own nests.

 But even during a recession?

UH, yup…

As of Oct 1, they began getting higher travel and lodging stipends, even though many hotels and restaurants have lowered their prices.
For staying in Albany, the cash allowances are now $171 a day, up from $160- a 7% hike-even if actual costs fall.

Lawmakers get to keep what they do not spend. Nice deal, huh?…. L
