There’s still no final three way deal on an ethics reform proposal at the State Capitol. And reform groups say a proposal offered by Governor Cuomo and the state Assembly does not go far enough.
The plan by Cuomo and Assembly Democrats requires that lawmakers disclose the source of all outside income they receive above $1000. Lawyers must reveal the names of their clients if they earn more than $5000. They would also have to prove they are actually in Albany, through an electronic monitoring system, before receiving their expense payments.
