RECLAIM NEW YORK INITIATIVE WINS BIG WITH GOVERNOR’S BUDGET PROPOSAL
Statement from Reclaim New York Initiative in response to Cuomo’s endorsement of Procurement Integrity and FOIL for the Legislature
“Our hat’s off to the Governor for finally joining Reclaim Initiative in endorsing greater transparency through FOIL for the state Legislature and endorsing procurement integrity. As we’ve said since the beginning, these two proposals are commonsense, bi-partisan ideas that will fight the Percoco, Skelos, Silver, et al, corruption plaguing the Empire State.
“It’s heartening to know that with just a little corruption at the highest offices in the state, a few – or more – years of prodding, and Reclaim Initiative demanding action, the Governor finally sees the light. This should be inspiring for New Yorkers who can now rest assure their leaders in Albany might finally get around to enacting the kinds of reforms that should garner unanimous support from both sides of the aisle.”
