Bruno on Legislative Reform

As mentioned by Capitol Confidential, the Times Union's blog, Senate Majority Leader Bruno's reaction to our new report has so far been much more positive than his 2004 dismissal of our findings. In a press release from the Majority Leader's office, Bruno stated:
The process of reforming State government is an ongoing one. We welcome the observations and recommendations of the Brennan Center and will closely review them with an eye towards additional government reforms aswe go forward so we can further improve accountability.
It's great to hear that the Majority Leader recognizes that the reforms made in 2005 were a first step, and we look forward to working with him to implement truly transformative changes in January.

We haven't been able to find the Majority Leader's statement on the Senate site, but you can find the document on the Capitol Confidential site (linked above).
