Spitzer Proposes Open Discussions of Hot Topics Before Close of Session

Governor Spitzer requested at today’s five-way leadership meeting that the leaders convene for open meetings once a week with the appropriate committee chairs and ranking members to discuss specific items on the agenda for the remaining weeks of the session. As long-time advocates of public airings of issues, we are delighted to hear this proposal to hold what amount to preemptive conference committees on specific bills ranging from campaign finance reform to public authorities to energy costs.

Here’s the audio of the leadership meeting.
