Moreland Act Commission

A government reform group in New York wants Governor Cuomo's Moreland Act Commission probe to focus on a loophole that it says has allowed $98 million in unlimited donations to flow into what's known as 'party housekeeping accounts'.

The Moreland Act allows the governor to set up a commission to examine state departments or bureaus, subpoena information, and make recommendations to the legislature.

Subpoenas have been sent to several undisclosed New York state public officials. That's according to a co-chair of Governor Andrew Coumo's Moreland Act commission that's looking into public corruption in the state.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's Moreland Act Commission to investigate the legislature is not the first time a Governor created a panel to probe state lawmakers. Cuomo's father did it a quarter century ago, with mixed results.
