Statement From Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman Regarding Ethics Reform Legislation Announcement


“Today’s announcement that an agreement has been reached on ethics reform legislation is a major step forward in the critical effort to restore New Yorkers’ faith in their state government. Since January, significant steps have been made towards this goal, including an on-time budget and our Office's initiative with the State Comptroller to expand the ability to prosecute wrongdoing involving government spending. I applaud Governor Cuomo, Speaker Silver, and Senator Skelos for reaching this agreement and good government groups for the critical role they have played in advocating for these reforms. I look forward to working with them to ensure we are doing everything possible to clean up Albany and give New Yorkers the honest and effective state government they deserve.”
