New Ethics Reform Plan Introduced in New York Legislature
Sen. Robert Ortt has introduced a new plan to fight corruption in the Legislature.
His “Shake up the Status Quo” plan aims to fight corruption by combining elements from several recent bills into a single bill with three planks: pension forfeiture for elected officials convicted of corruption charges; term limits; and additional ethics oversight.
Although Ortt is optimistic the bill can pass before the Legislature adjourns, only nine days are left in the legislative session.
