Public Comments Sought by New York’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics
The Joint Commission on Public Ethics is seeking public comment on a recent proposal aiming to prohibit pay-to-play contributions. The proposal comes in the form of an advisory opinion, and would prohibit statewide executive and legislative candidates from accepting campaign contributions from persons or organizations subject to their enforcement powers.
Currently, there is no prohibition on pay-to-play type contributions for legislative statewide elected candidates. The Joint Commission has not established a deadline for accepting public comments.
