NYOpenGovernment consolidates information from a variety of existing public disclosure databases and made it available on this website. A “member item” is the colloquial term used to describe state funding allocated by legislators to community, civic, and public health initiatives in their home district. Beginning in 2010 member items have been removed from the state budget through the use of the Governor’s line-item veto power.Therefore, though some legacy spending continues and discretionary spending exists through other means, member items have not been reported since 2010. Member item data on NYOpenGovernment is for historical reference only.
