ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a campaign to eliminate pink tax in New York State.

"New York has made tremendous progress in advancing women's rights all across the board, but unfortunately women are still victims of cultural and institutional discrimination," Gov. Cuomo said.


Cuomo’s Friday announcement is a key component of his 2020 Women’s Agenda.

"This year, New York will once again lead the nation and continue our work to end this shameful and repugnant injustice by eliminating the so-called pink tax once and for all," Cuomo said. "Because pink or blue, the price should be the same."
