The governor of New York wants to deprive the beneficiaries of lottery winnings



Winning the lottery will no longer be a ticket to a prosperous life for New Yorkers who receive public assistance if Governor Cuomo’s full bill is approved.

According to New York Daily News, the governor of the State of New York introduced into the draft budget a clause according to which those who receive social assistance will have to give the state a gain of more than $ 600 or compensate for all social benefits received by it for 10 years.

Currently, the state may claim compensation from beneficiaries up to 50% of any lottery winnings over $ 600.

“Государственная помощь становится кредитом, который вы должны заплатить”, – сказал председатель комитета Ассамблеи социальных услуг Эндрю Хевеси, который выступает против такой идеи.

Representatives of the Cuomo administration defend the proposal, stating that they intend to fight illegal use of the benefits of state aid for the purchase of lottery tickets.

According to the laws of New York, state benefits are forbidden to spend on gambling, in particular on the state lottery, but it is difficult to trace.

Пункт про лотерею был одним из нескольких статей бюджета, что вызвало опасение. Еще одним спорным пунктом стал план Куомо продлить на 3 года так называемый “налог на миллионеров”.

Куомо утверждает, налог сможет перекрыть дефицит штата в $3,5 млрд, а также поможет снизить налоги для среднего класса. Республиканцы, однако, пообещали бороться с продлением “налога на миллионеров”.
