Re: [GreenYes] NYC: It gets even better ... Not
Maggie -- Sheesh, bad news on the heels of last weeks decent news. Can you please clarify something in your post --

Rick Muller at the Manhattan boro prez' ofc says that along with killing collection of MGP, they are turning the NY state five cent deposit into a tax.

Does this mean NYC is pushing the NY state legislature to transmogrify the deposit into a tax, or does the NY state law give the City some sort of home rule power? More pointedly, are they "turning it into a tax" or are they "trying to turn it into a tax"?

Thanks. Also, I don't know what sorts of economic figures you are looking for but do check out the recent report evaluating the economics of bottle bills versus curbside collection, which you can get to off of home page.
