Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed several campaign finance and ethics changes in his executive budget.
These recommendations include creating a code of conduct for lobbyists and campaign finance reform.
The lobbyist’s code of conduct would include lowering the registration threshold, require reporting of campaign contributions, increase the revolving door provision from two to five years, along with additional disclosures and penalties.
Cuomo also called for banning corporate contributions, as well as lowering individual contributions to statewide and General Assembly candidates.
He also urged the Legislature to pass a revision that closes the Limited Liability Company loophole and prevents LLCs from contributing more than $5,000 annually.
