A New York State Senator from the Hudson Valley says a legislative ethics package unveiled this week by the Senate Democratic Conference includes one of his bills.

Democratic Senator Terry Gipson says the ethics package is designed to reform state government and combat ongoing corruption issues.

He says current laws regulating usage of campaign funds are lax, with little oversight.

The Senate Democratic Conference also announced support for the principles of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposed Public Trust Act, intended to crack down on political corruption.
