Try to understand this.The NYS Thruway/Canal Authority is a Privately run corporation ass clown do some homework before you call someone else dumb.
The NYS Thruway/Canal Authority is a NYS state agency. The officials are nominated by the governor and confirmed by the NYS Senate. It is a public authority as opposed to being a traditional state agency but it is a state agency nonetheless.
The is from the NYS Comptroller's webpage explaining public authorities of which the New York State Thruway/Canal Authority is one:
"Information on NY's Public Authorities
Public authorities are corporate instruments of the State created by the Legislature to further public interests. These entities develop, operate and maintain some of New York 's most critical infrastructure including roads, bridges and schools. As a result, public authorities play a significant role in the debt structure of New York State. Currently, over 94 percent of all State-funded debt outstanding was issued by public authorities without voter approval."
It is a public authority not a private corporation. There is a difference and all of your name calling and nonsensical posts aren't going to change that.
