So people are leaving New York.  That's not news.  But, some lawmakers are now trying to figure out why.

I almost did a survey to see what you would say, but instead I figured you could comment and let me know since I'm writing about this.  Because I do want to know your thoughts.

According to cbs 6 Albany, this is the fourth year in a row that the population has declined in New York.  To me that clearly shows a trend, not just an anomaly.  In one year from 2018-2019, the population declined almost 77,000 in people. Since 2010, about 1.4 million people have left, so now some lawmakers are trying to find out why.

Senator Jim Tedisco and Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara are doing an online survey according to cbs 6 Albany to find our the reasons for the move.  Senator Tedisco did seem to call out the state and New York's government for not addressing this, even mentioning the phrase "I'm leaving New York" instead of "I love New York" as the state slogan in a statement.  You can read the Senator's remarks and more information all about it here.  But really, New York's a great place but this trend doesn't surprise me at all.  It'd be nice to see it addressed.  What are your thoughts?
