New York Governor Pushes for PAC Reforms
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has outlined another bill to supplement his ethics reform agenda.
If passed, the new bill would create regulations and restrictions for independent expenditure campaigns and improve transparency, with the ultimate goal of preventing candidates from having direct control over Super PACs by selecting friends or political allies to steer them.
The new bill is an effort to coax the Legislature to pass ethical reforms before their session comes to a close next week.
