A03469 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A3469A
 
SPONSOR: McDonald
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public officers law, in relation to requiring legis- lators and candidates for member of the legislature to provide a link to their financial disclosure statements on their official state and campaign websites   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this legislation is to increase transparency and to educate the public about who represents them by requiring members of the legislature and candidates for such elected office to post their finan- cial disclosure statements in visible domains for constituents and the electorate to easily access them.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends Section 73-a (2) of the Public Officers Law by adding new subparagraphs (ii) and (iii), which would require every member of the legislature and legislative candidate who maintain any website for service in their official state or campaign capacities to post their annual financial disclosure statements on such websites. Section 2 of the bill establishes the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The Public Integrity Reform Act of 2011 required New York State govern- ment officials and State legislative candidates to file financial disclosure statements to the Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) on an annual basis. The financial disclosure statements must be submit- ted to JCOPE by May 15 of each calendar year, where they are thoroughly review by the commission. After the commission approves the statements for public posting, JCOPE is required to post such statements on their website by June 30 of each calendar year. The intent of the act was to comprehensively reform both the requirements and enforcement of public ethics in the state. The intent of the act is laudable for its efforts to restore public confidence in our government by requiring the disclo- sure of outside income sources of elected officials. However, there appears to be a gap between the posting of statements on JCOPE's website and the accessibility for the public to find such statements. This legislation seeks to remedy the issue by requiring State legisla- tors and State legislative candidates to post their annual financial disclosure forms, which have already been reviewed and approved by JCOPE for public posting, on their official state and campaign websites. It is vital to increase the transparency of our government and to educate constituents and the electorate about who represents them. Access to the outside income of our elected officials and candidates for such offices will promote the much-needed public trust in this state.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019/2020: S.1007 Referred to Finance 2017/2018: S.4726 Referred to Finance   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately, however that Section 2 of this act shall take effect on January 1, 2023.

    25  subparagraphs  (i) through (iv) of this paragraph, as the result of such
    26  procurement, solicitation or direction of the  reporting  individual.  A

    35  or she or his or her firm provided legal representation with respect  to
    36  investigation or prosecution by law enforcement authorities, bankruptcy,
    37  or  domestic  relations  matters. With respect to clients represented in
    38  other matters, where disclosure of a  client's  identity  is  likely  to
    39  cause harm, the reporting individual shall request an exemption from the
    40  commission  on  ethics  and  lobbying  in government pursuant to section
    41  ninety-four of the executive law, provided, however,  that  a  reporting
    42  individual who first enters public office after July first, two thousand

     2  law to be kept confidential (such as  matters  governed  by  the  family
     3  court act) or in matters in which the reporting individual represents or
     4  provides  services  to  minors,  the  client's name may be replaced with
     5  initials. To the extent that the reporting individual,  or  his  or  her
     6  firm,  provided  legal  representation with respect to an initial public
     7  offering, and professional disciplinary  rules,  federal  law  or  regu-
     8  lations  restrict  the  disclosure of information relating to such work,
     9  the reporting individual shall (i) disclose the identity of  the  client
    10  and the services provided relating to the initial public offering to the
    11  office  of  court  administration,  who  will  maintain such information
    12  confidentially in a locked box; and (ii) include in his or her  response
    13  to  questions (b-1) and (b-2) that pursuant to this paragraph, a disclo-
    14  sure to the office of court administration has been made. Upon such time
    15  that the disclosure of information maintained in the locked  box  is  no
    16  longer  restricted  by  professional  disciplinary rules, federal law or
    17  regulation, the reporting individual shall disclose such information  in
    18  an  amended  disclosure statement in response to the disclosure require-
    19  ments in questions (b-1) and (b-2). The office of  court  administration
    20  shall  develop  and  maintain  a secure portal through which information
    21  submitted to it pursuant to this paragraph can be safely  and  confiden-
    22  tially  stored. With respect to clients represented in other matters not
    23  otherwise exempt, the reporting individual may request an  exemption  to
    24  publicly  disclosing  the  name  of  that  client from the commission on
    25  ethics and lobbying in government pursuant to section ninety-four of the
    26  executive law, or from the  office  of  court  administration.  In  such
    27  application,  the  reporting  individual  shall state the following: "My
    28  client is not currently receiving my services or seeking my services  in
    29  connection with:
    30    (i) A proposed bill or resolution in the senate or assembly during the
    31  reporting period;
    32    (ii)  A  contract in an amount totaling $10,000 or more from the state
    33  or any state agency for services, materials, or property;
    34    (iii) A grant of $10,000 or more from the state or  any  state  agency
    35  during the reporting period;
    36    (iv)  A  grant  obtained  through  a legislative initiative during the
    37  reporting period; or
    38    (v) A case, proceeding, application or other  matter  that  is  not  a
    39  ministerial matter before a state agency during the reporting period."
    40    In  reviewing  the  request for an exemption, the commission on ethics
    41  and lobbying in government or the office  of  court  administration  may
    42  consult  with bar or other professional associations and the legislative
    43  ethics commission for individuals subject to its  jurisdiction  and  may
    44  consider the rules of professional conduct. In making its determination,
    45  the  commission  on  ethics  and lobbying in government or the office of
    46  court administration shall conduct its own inquiry  and  shall  consider
    47  factors  including,  but  not limited to: (i) the nature and the size of
    48  the client; (ii) whether the client has any business before  the  state;
    49  and  if  so, how significant the business is; and whether the client has
    50  any particularized interest in pending legislation and if so how signif-
    51  icant the  interest  is;  (iii)  whether  disclosure  may  reveal  trade
    52  secrets;  (iv) whether disclosure could reasonably result in retaliation
    53  against the client; (v) whether disclosure may cause undue harm  to  the
    54  client;  (vi)  whether disclosure may result in undue harm to the attor-
    55  ney-client relationship; and (vii) whether disclosure may result  in  an
    56  unnecessary invasion of privacy to the client.

     7  disciplinary rule to the contrary, the disclosure of the identity of any
     8  client  or  customer  in  response to this question shall not constitute
     9  professional misconduct or a ground for disciplinary action of any kind,
    10  or form the basis for any civil or criminal cause of action or  proceed-

    21  greater  from any employment or activity reportable under question 8(a),
    22  identify each registered lobbyist who  has  directly  referred  to  such
    23  individual a client who was successfully referred to the reporting indi-
    24  vidual's  business  and  from  whom  the  reporting  individual  or firm
    25  received a fee for services in excess of five thousand  dollars.  Report
    26  only  those referrals that were made to a reporting individual by direct
    27  communication from a person known to such reporting individual to  be  a
    28  registered  lobbyist  at  the time the referral is made. With respect to
    29  each such referral, the reporting individual shall identify the  client,
    30  the registered lobbyist who has made the referral, the category of value
    31  of  the  compensation  received and a general description of the type of
    32  matter so referred. A reporting individual need not disclose  activities
    33  performed while lawfully acting pursuant to paragraphs (c), (d), (e) and
    34  (f)  of  subdivision seven of section seventy-three of this article. The
    35  disclosure requirements in this question shall  not  require  disclosing
    36  clients   or  customers  receiving  medical,  pharmaceutical  or  dental
    37  services, mental health services, or residential real  estate  brokering
    38  services  from the reporting individual or his or her firm or if federal
    39  law prohibits or limits disclosure. The reporting  individual  need  not
    40  identify  any client to whom he or she or his or her firm provided legal
    41  representation with respect  to  investigation  or  prosecution  by  law
    42  enforcement  authorities,  bankruptcy, family court, estate planning, or
    43  domestic relations matters, nor shall the reporting individual  identify
    44  individuals  represented pursuant to an insurance policy but the report-
    45  ing individual shall in such circumstances only report the  entity  that
    46  provides  compensation  to  the  reporting  individual;  with respect to
    47  matters in which the client's name is required by law to be kept  confi-
    48  dential (such as matters governed by the family court act) or in matters
    49  in  which  the  reporting  individual represents or provides services to
    50  minors, the client's name may be replaced with initials. To  the  extent
    51  that the reporting individual, or his or her firm, provided legal repre-
    52  sentation with respect to an initial public offering, and federal law or
    53  regulations  restricts  the  disclosure  of information relating to such
    54  work, the reporting individual shall (i) disclose the  identity  of  the
    55  client and the services provided relating to the initial public offering

     2  response  a  statement  that pursuant to this paragraph, a disclosure to
     3  the office of court administration has been made. Upon  such  time  that
     4  the  disclosure of information maintained in the locked box is no longer
     5  restricted by federal law or regulation, the reporting individual  shall
     6  disclose such information in an amended disclosure statement in response
     7  to  the  disclosure requirements of this paragraph.  The office of court
     8  administration shall develop and maintain a secure portal through  which
     9  information submitted to it pursuant to this paragraph can be safely and
    10  confidentially  stored.  With  respect  to  clients represented in other
    11  matters not otherwise exempt, the reporting individual  may  request  an
    12  exemption  to  publicly  disclosing  the  name  of  that client from the
    13  commission on ethics and lobbying  in  government  pursuant  to  section
    14  ninety-four  of  the executive law, or from the office of court adminis-
    15  tration. In such application, the reporting individual shall  state  the
    16  following:  "My client is not currently receiving my services or seeking
    17  my services in connection with:
    18    (i) A proposed bill or resolution in the senate or assembly during the

    23  during the reporting period;
    24    (iv) A grant obtained through  a  legislative  initiative  during  the
    25  reporting period; or
    26    (v)  A  case,  proceeding,  application  or other matter that is not a
    27  ministerial matter before a state agency during the reporting period."
    28    In reviewing the request for an exemption, the  commission  on  ethics
    29  and  lobbying  in  government  or the office of court administration may
    30  consult with bar or other professional associations and the  legislative
    31  ethics  commission  for  individuals subject to its jurisdiction and may
    32  consider the rules of professional conduct. In making its determination,
    33  the commission on ethics and lobbying in government  or  the  office  of
    34  court  administration  shall  conduct its own inquiry and shall consider
    35  factors including, but not limited to: (i) the nature and  the  size  of
    36  the  client;  (ii) whether the client has any business before the state;
    37  and if so, how significant the business is; and whether the  client  has
    38  any particularized interest in pending legislation and if so how signif-
    39  icant  the  interest  is;  (iii)  whether  disclosure  may  reveal trade
    40  secrets; (iv) whether disclosure could reasonably result in  retaliation
    41  against  the  client; (v) whether disclosure may cause undue harm to the
    42  client; (vi) whether disclosure may result in undue harm to  the  attor-
    43  ney-client  relationship;  and (vii) whether disclosure may result in an
    44  unnecessary invasion of privacy to the client.
    45    The commission on ethics and lobbying in government or,  as  the  case
    46  may  be,  the office of court administration shall promptly make a final
    47  determination in response to such request, which shall include an expla-
    48  nation for its determination.  The office of court administration  shall
    49  issue  its  final  determination  within  three  days  of  receiving the
    50  request. Notwithstanding any other provision of law or any  professional
    51  disciplinary rule to the contrary, the disclosure of the identity of any
    52  client  or  customer  in  response to this question shall not constitute
    53  professional misconduct or a ground for disciplinary action of any kind,
