Ethics, State Constitutions, and Election Day:
What You Should Know About The "Con Con" Vote
Next month's vote on whether New York will hold a constitutional convention has generated much discussion about what constitutional provisions should be added by delegates if a convention occurs. The Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity at Columbia Law School and the Hugh Carey Institute for Government Reform have conducted an academic study of ethics-related provisions in the constitutions all 50 states, in an attempt to determine the most effective way to use the New York constitution to curb our state's corruption problem. Join us on October 24 for a discussion of this important work. Please register here.
