NY state constitutional convention vote NO!

August 14, 2017


The constitution establishes the fundamental rights you enjoy as a citizen of NY State, as a public employee, retired employee, including:

  • Guaranteeing the right to a free public education

  • Prohibiting reductions in public pension benefits

  • Rights to workers compensation

  • Rights to be a member of a union and bargain collectively

  • Requiring that the state provide for social welfare needs

The constitution establishes a basic organizational structure for state government. Changes could be made that give too much power to one branch, for example the Executive. This could unbalance power and weaken the legislature. The constitution sets the most important policy goals for the people of NY State. Changes will affect every other law currently in place and will impact future statutes.
