===Pension sweeteners===
 +
On February 13, 2013, New York legislators introduced eight bills to "sweeten" government employee pensions.  The nonpartisan Citizens Budget Commission released a chart of these bills and their costs, totaling $1.311 billion for the state government and $46 million for local governments.  Titone sponsored one of these eight.<ref>[http://www.cbcny.org/cbc-blogs/blogs/busy-day-albany Citizens Budget Commission, "A Busy Day in Albany," February 20, 2013]</ref>  E.J. McMahon of the pro-market Empire State Center for New York Policy criticized the bills but placed major responsibility for them on Governor [[Andrew Cuomo]], who in 2012 raised the possibility of better pension deals if the economy improved.<ref>[http://www.nytorch.com/?p=7131 E.J. McMahon, Empire State Center for New York Policy, "Pension follies continue," February 21, 2013]</ref>  The ''New York Daily News'' published an editorial against the bills on February 21, denouncing the proposals as examples of "incorrigible recklessness with the public’s money."<ref>[http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/-article-1.1269289 ''New York Daily News'', "More, more, always more," February 21, 2013]</ref>
