Karen Tararache reports at WNYT TV in Albany that though there is some ethics reform in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's budget, he's been mum on the issue since his "State of the State" tour in early January. And legislators aren't talking ethics either. "Legislators know that the public, when push comes to shove, they care about their education in their districts. They don't care about ethics because it doesn't affect them," Barbara Bartoletti explained, League of Women Voters Legislative Director. "Although he [Cuomo] puts it in the budget and I think he's done this three budget cycles now, it never rises to the top and he doesn't go out and promote it he puts it in the State of the State he gets a 'rah, rah, rah,' and then he ever talks about it again," Bartoletti said.
