DiNapoli Seeks Restoration Of Oversight Powers

Nov 21, 2016

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released a 1,600-word statement last week outlining his priorities for various state-level ethics reforms for the upcoming legislative session that begins in January. This follows years of scandal at the state capitol in Albany, including a current investigation into the executive chamber. Part of Cuomo’s plan calls for new positions to oversee SUNY and CUNY contracts. That job used to belong to the New York state comptroller, Tom DiNapoli, who has had a testy relationship with the governor. DiNapoli is the guest on this week’s Capitol Connection with WAMC’s Alan Chartock.
