Squadron Prods Senate Colleagues On ‘LLC loophole’ Bill

From Chris Bragg in the Times Union: “with the state budget passed, Brooklyn/Manhattan Democratic state Sen. Daniel Squadron is renewing efforts to push through legislation closing the so-called LLC loophole in state election law, which allows huge political giving by individual donors.

In a letter to every senator who is not currently a sponsor of the bill, a group that includes every state Senate Republican, as well as Democratic state Sens. Simcha Felder (who conferences with Republicans), David Valesky, Diane Savino, David Carlucci (part of the five-member Independent Democratic Conference), IDC leader Jeff Klein, and Ruben Diaz Sr., Squadron writes that, “Many of us have made the promise to clean up and reform Albany. If the LLC loophole endures beyond this session, we have failed in that promise.”
