Erie County Legislator Barbara Miller-Williams Champions Community College Chargeback Reform

Buffalo, NY- On Thursday, January 22, 2015, the Erie County Legislature’s Community Enrichment Committee unanimously passed a resolution submitted by Legislator Barbara Miller-Williams (D-Buffalo) conveying its support for the reform of the Community College Chargeback Policy that has put a financial strain on Erie County and it's municipalities.

“New York State’s chargeback policy was implemented into State law in the 1950s, and is inadvertently causing an undue burden on Erie County's struggling local governments.  A review of the New York State’s antiquated system of Community College Chargeback Rates is warranted in order to formulate a multi-partisan strategy to address this issue with the WNY State Delegation and encourage reform of this chargeback policy” stated Legislator Miller-Williams in her resolution.
