As Acting Comptroller, he refused to pay a bill submitted to the Comptroller's office by former Governor George Pataki in his final days in office. The bill was to pay for a private jet Pataki used to fly to Virginia to inspect steel for construction at Ground Zero. Sanzillo said that Pataki could have flown a state aircraft to Virginia for the trip. The bill was sent back to the Governor's Office and Gov. Eliot Spitzer decided to remit the bill to Pataki to have his campaign committee pay it.fact|date=June 2008
