Earlier this afternoon, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he’s going to be selling New York State’s old stuff on eBay, to the excitement of whomever is interested in the state government’s old office supplies, furniture, and highway equipment.
Why is New York State selling its old stuff? Is New York State moving out of its old dusty Albany apartment to a new loft in Williamsburg?
Probably not, it seems.
In his statement, Mr. Cuomo said the government is selling “unneeded equipment and supplies” in order to “reduce operating costs and cut back on excess spending and inventory.”
