Statement from Senate Democratic Leader John L. Sampson on Ethics Reform Agreement
“As I said on the first day of session, real change and real reform is driven by the people. Today’s agreement on ethics reform is finally the right answer to the public’s call for action. “I commend Governor Cuomo and the other legislative leaders for taking the steps to clean up Albany and give New Yorkers the more accountable and responsible state government they deserve. By restoring faith in the Legislature, we can finally give New Yorkers a reason to once again believe in a New York where anything is possible. “The flawed ways of the past have blocked the change needed to build a new New York right now, and it’s up to us to fix it. By reaching an agreement to pass ethics reform we can tear down the walls of distrust and forge the path of public trust that leads New York toward a brighter future.”
