Attorney General Schneiderman To Introduce Campaign Contribution And Ethics Legislation

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will introduce a package of ethics measures that range from lower caps on campaign contributions, lobbying restrictions and creates a full-time Legislature blocked from earning outside income.

The  proposals are outlined in an  Albany Times Union oped.

The End New York Corruption Now Act —” dramatically lowers contribution limits, sharply restricts contributions by lobbyists, closes donation loopholes so big you can drive a Mack truck through them, and provides matching funds for small contributions to offset the power of mega-donors.”
