Financial Disclosure Information Released

The Joint Commission on Public Ethics today posted updated financial disclosure records for 213 state lawmakers, a product of the 2011 ethics law.

The documents provide unredacted income ranges from state lawmakers’ outside business interests as well as their investments and real estate holdings along with those of their spouses.

Updated records for Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Lt. Gov. Bob Duffy, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli were previously posted last month.

But the records for lawmakers was withheld for a month by the Legislative Ethics Committee and then transferred to JCOPE this week.

The records for the Senate can be viewed here and the Assembly can be viewed here.

“These new disclosures represent a substantial leap in transparency for New York State as the curtain is pulled back on the values of our public officials’ outside financial interests,” said Joint Commission Chair Daniel J. Horwitz.   POST
