New York Ski Tax

Gov. Patterson wants to tax lift tickets and rentals to help close the budget gap. Bad idea for the ski and snowboard economy. Please check out stoptheskitax.com for info and links to your government representatives to voice your concern!

this sounds like typical NY politics. raise taxes & make new ones to fix the problem. I'll be signing the petition as well as writing a letter when I get home.But most of all i'll be glad to leave this state with everyone else when im done w school...

Nothing gets done in NY without massive kickbacks, that's where Patterson should start.

Patterson's making a shitload of bad choices and a few good ones when it comes to the budget. He's not going to win re-election anyway, his budget cut measures are WAY too draconian to go down well with the people. I may live in NY, but I board in Mass. I also drink diet soda, don't smoke, avoid fast food, and have my own healthcare insurance, so his antics really aren't going to effect me.

However, I'll sign the petition out of general principle, as an extra tax on a sport that only a relatively few people do for 3 months out of the year isn't going to help at all, that's something that even most blind people can see.

I cannot see any chance of him getting re-ele...well actually elected for his second term. I love how politicians call for major cuts in funding and then vote to give themselves a raise.
