OPWDD Needs Money More Than 'Tonight Show,' Assemblyman Says

ALBANY -- Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, R-Glenville, is calling for fellow lawmakers to allocate $5 million he believes has been set aside to lure the "Tonight Show" back to New York and instead put the money toward the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.
Jimmy Fallon of the "Tonight Show."

"The role of state government is to have spending priorities and protect our most vulnerable citizens in the state budget," Tedisco said in a press release. "Our policy should be looking out for families and people with developmental disabilities in communities like Ballston Spa, not giving taxpayer-funded handouts to support the lifestyles of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills."
