ALBANY, N.Y. — If Assemblyman
Jim Tedisco gets his way, the New York State Legislature may soon go
paperless.

Tedisco announced Friday that
both houses of the legislature have passed a constitutional amendment that
would enable the legislature to go digital.

The amendment would allow
digital copies of legislation on a legislator's desk, cutting down on the hundreds
of thousands pieces of paper.

The measure will be
decided by voters on the ballot during the November 2014 general election.
