Chris Bragg is reporting at Capitol Confidential Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wed., Jun. 22, that he does not believe holding a special session later this year to close the so-called LLC loophole or to restrict lawmakers’ outside income would be productive. Cuomo said it would be futile to call them back and believes the only way to implement the changes is with a Constitutional Convention. “There’s no point to calling them back, because the measures they didn’t do, they don’t want to do,” Cuomo said. The Times Union reported this week not much progress has been made in building momentum for a Constitutional Convention so far. Read the full story at Capitol Confidential, a Times Union blog.
