Submitted article

State Senator Patty Ritchie voted today for an historic ethics reform bill to help restore the public’s trust in their government.

“If we want to encourage businesses to locate in New York and convince existing businesses to remain and create more jobs here, we need to continue our efforts to bring real reform and change to Albany,” Senator Ritchie said.

“This bill provides greater transparency and expands disclosure of outside employment and income of all legislators and makes the information available to the public,” Senator Ritchie said. “It demonstrates that we in the legislature are committed to keeping the promises we make and restoring New York State as a place where families are proud to live and raise a family.”
