Re: Political malpractice forced Amazon out of NYC

Here is what the law provides for NYC commercial real estate tax abatements.

Amazon clearly needed a special law to be passed. The Mayor doesn't pass laws; the City Council passes laws and the Mayor signs them. Do you think the Mayor and Governor don't know that?

Similarly if the state was providing any special state tax abatements not available to any schlub of a company; they need to be passed by the legislature and signed by the governor.

Do you really think Amazon's lawyers didn't know that the Amazon deal needed approval by the applicable legislatures?
