New York Legislature Returns to Review Ethics Reform Initiative
The Legislature was scheduled to adjourn Thursday, but will instead return Friday in an effort to reach final agreement on a few key bills.
Assembly Bill 10739 has been sent to the Senate for review. If it is successful there, the bill would allow courts to revoke or reduce lawmakers’ pensions and retirement rights if they are convicted of felony-level corruption offenses.
Although a slew of other ethics reform bills was introduced during this session, no others are currently expected to pass.
