Governor Cuomo is making some changes to prevent any future bid rigging in some of his major economic development projects, but critics on both the left and the right say the governor is failing to address the bigger picture – whether the $8.6 billion dollars’ worth of programs are an effective use of public monies.

Many of those illegal acts, the complaint alleges, involve the governor’s much touted Upstate economic development programs, including the Buffalo Billion.
