New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he is creating a powerful investigative committee under New York's anti-corruption Moreland Act to investigate the entire state Legislature.
The Democrat says negotiations to create new public integrity laws failed, so he's creating the investigative panel instead. He says Wednesday he refused to "significantly compromise" his reform proposal.
The committee will have subpoena power and go after the influence of campaign contributions on politicians.
The issue was forced by corruption cases involving lawmakers this spring.
