She’s not gonna get them…
Gov. Kathy Hochul will propose a ban on statewide elected officials being able to earn outside income in the wake of her own predecessor, disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, pocketing $5.1 million on his ‘American Crisis’ book deal.
The so-called Cuomo rule would require an amendment to New York’s constitution — as would another new Hochul proposal that would set limits of two consecutive terms for statewide elected officials, her office said Monday.
That means officials serving as governor, lieutenant governor, state attorney general and state comptroller would be limited to a maximum of eight years in office, much like elected posts in New York City.
Hochul’s outside income ban would apply to the governor, lieutenant governor, state attorney general and state comptroller….
Both pieces of legislation would require passage by the state legislature during two separate sessions and then would have to be approved by voters in a public referendum before becoming law.
But the term limit proposal is already splitting top lawmakers….
