The investigation into former Governor Andrew Cuomo could finish by Oct. 1, according to a lawmaker on the panel.
The report, which began as an impeachment investigation, is expected to be made public soon after it’s concluded.
Republican Assemblywoman Majorie Byrnes said it’s something the public will be interested in learning more about.
The panel was originally going to suspend the investigation when the other investigations into Cuomo’s alleged criminal activity began, but reversed the decision when both Democrats and Republicans spoke out against it.
An impeachment proceeding is not likely to happen because Cuomo resigned last month, but the panel wants to issue an accurate report following the one that launched the investigation to begin with from the Attorney General’s Office.
The report will likely release findings on the various issues within the Cuomo administration, including the allegations of sexual harassment, the coverup of nursing home deaths due to COVID-19, his use of government resources to write his memoir, and the project for the Tappan Zee Bridge.
