Ethics Bill Passes Both Houses
June 13th, 2011

The Senate and Assembly passed the “Public Integrity Reform Act of 2011″ today. The Senate passed the measure 61-0, while the initial vote by the Assembly is 99-1.

Meanwhile there is more movement on gay marriage. Senate Republicans are reportedly going to the Governor’s Mansion to speak to Gov. Andrew Cuomo about the gay marriage legislation. Meanwhile Republican Sen. Jim Alesi emerged from a meeting with Cuomo earlier today to announce that he will vote for the bill. Earlier today, three Democrats who previously voted against the bill announced they will vote for it. That means there are 30 of the 32 needed yes votes in the Senate. Same-sex marriage advocates told Cuomo today that they want him to bring the bill to a vote and Cuomo’s office has indicated it could happen this week. There are only 5 days remaining in session.
