Siena College released the New York State Index of Consumer Sentiment for the second quarter of 2019 today, and it shows a grim picture of how New Yorkers feel about the economy.

Proposed legislation is under consideration in Albany that would allow check cashing companies the ability to issue loans. Consumer advocates, including the Western New York Law Center, are urging lawmakers to reject the idea.

According to a newly-released poll, consumer confidence is higher overall in New York State, but the levels of confidence vary based on one's political affiliation.

A new consumer sentiment study shows New Yorkers are thinking twice before reaching for their wallets.
