Block that acronym!

by E.J. McMahon |  | NY Torch

Never mind...The (apparently) agreed-upon version of Governor Cuomo’s “Tax Free NY” proposal includes a new name for the thing: “SUNY Tax-free Areas toRevitalize and Transform UPstate New York,” or START-UP NY.

It’s easily Albany’s most convoluted concoction of verbiage in search of an acronym since the fiscally and grammatically regrettable “Learning-Achieving-Developing-by-Directing Education Resources” program, or LADDER, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s school aid initiative in the late 1990s.
