ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York state government news, more college students could soon head to Puerto Rico as part of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's effort to help the island recover from last year's hurricane.
The Democrat traveled to Puerto Rico last week for the fifth time since Hurricane Maria devastated the Caribbean territory. So far 500 students from public universities in New York have volunteered on rebuilding projects. More than 3,000 students applied to help, and Cuomo says he believes the program will be expanded.
Meanwhile, new numbers on the recently concluded tax season show that state auditors stopped more than 10,000 state tax refunds after finding mistakes. The errors included incorrect information or questionable Social Security numbers.
