ALBANY, New York — New York Senate Republicans have introduced ethics legislation requiring state officials file financial disclosures for everyone they live with — a move that would affect Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo girlfriend and television chef Sandra Lee lives with the governor. The bill would expand existing annual disclosure beyond an official, spouse and dependent children.
Cuomo proposed last week to require detailed disclosure of officials' outside income, which would apply to many Senate Republicans who are lawyers.
A spokeswoman for the governor says they'll be happy to review any proposal with the bill's sponsor, "whoever that may be."
The listed sponsor is the Senate Rules Committee.
A spokesman for the Senate Republican Conference says their goal is to pass "a comprehensive ethics package that restores the public trust."
