State Judge Strikes Down New York Campaign Finance, Election Law Overhaul

As reported in today’s  NY Post by  Bernadette  Hogan and and Carl Campanile, “a  state judge ruled Thursday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Legislature broke the law last year when they punted an overhaul of the state’s election laws and campaign finance regulations to an unelected panel.

Niagara County Supreme Court Justice Ralph Boniello declared in an 11-page ruling that the law — which was tucked in last year’s state budget — amounted to “an improper and unconstitutional delegation of legislative authority.””
