On the first day of the 2016 legislative session, Common Cause/NY, NYPIRG, Citizens Union are calling for all 213 lawmakers, and the Governor, to sign a “Clean Conscience Pledge” to address the political crime wave in Albany.

The pledge includes three reforms:

1. Close the LLC loophole

2. Ban or limit outside income

3. Transparency in discretionary funds

A hardcopy of the pledge has been distributed to lawmakers, and a digital version will be available at www.EthicsPledgeNY.org. Reform groups will be working with their membership to put local pressure on elected officials to sign on.
