Legislature Supports “Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public Act”

Thursday, November 9, 2017

By unanimous vote, Legislators approved a resolution expressing formal support of pending Senate and Assembly bills before the New York State Legislature known as the “Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public Act.” The proposed legislation would require presidential candidates to disclose their personal finances before they could appear on the ballot.

Legislator Mike Sigler proposed a substitute version, which the Legislature ultimately approved, that also urged that the measure go further and also include candidates for statewide office, such as for Governor, Assembly, Senate; Comptroller and Attorney General, and New York candidates for the U.S. Congress. In advancing his substitute proposal, Mr. Sigler said he didn’t particularly like legislation that targets one person and that any such requirement should be extended to such other offices.
