Cuomo Calls for Total Disclosure of Lawmakers' Outside Income

Monday, 02 Feb 2015 04:24 PM

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York lawmakers must disclose all outside income, and that he would refuse to sign a budget lacking ethics provisions.

Cuomo, in a speech at New York University, said he expected his demand would mean the end of a streak of four consecutive on-time budgets as lawmakers resist the changes.

The statement followed the Jan. 22 arrest of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, 70, who was accused by federal prosecutors of using his power to gain millions of dollars in undeserved legal referral fees.
