Proposal would limit outside income for lawmakers to 15% of their state salary

A state proposal to limit outside income for elected officials in New York is gaining momentum.

The proposal by State Senator Liz Krueger comes after reports surfaced earlier this year that Governor Andrew Cuomo made more than $5 million for his book about the pandemic response.

The bill, which would limit statewide officeholders and legislators to 15% of their public salary is modeled after a federal law limiting outside income that can be earned by Congress.

Gov. Cuomo remains under investigation for his handling of the pandemic.
