Reacting to the Senate and the Assembly “refusal to cooperate” with the Commission in its efforts “to examine abuse of office by public officials and misconduct while in office,” the Commission issued the following statement:

STATEMENT FROM MORELAND COMMISSION CO-CHAIRS

"Pursuant to the Executive Order, the mandate of the Moreland Commission, among other things, is to examine abuse of office by public officials and misconduct while in office. Our investigation includes examining New York State legislators and their connections to outside business practices.

"On August 27, we requested information to be submitted by certain legislators. Leaders of the legislature for both the Assembly and Senate refused to cooperate.

"The Commission voted today [October 15, 2013] to aggressively move forward in compelling production of information into specific matters that the Commission is investigating.

"The Commission will continue its mandate of investigating corruption, issuing subpoenas, holding public hearings and will issue our first report on December 1."
