NYS bill tracker: Senate panel to consider bill targeting campaign contributions

ALBANY — Legislative committees are scheduled to consider 405 bills this week.

The Senate’s elections committee will considering a bill from Sen. Terrence Murphy responding to allegations that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s fundraising on behalf of Senate Democrats in 2014 was illegal. The legislation would increase the penalty for circumventing campaign contribution limits by raising money through a county committee, making such an activity a Class D felony.

The same committee will consider several bills on which Democrats have forced votes, including one form Sen. Dan Squadron to limit the amount of money limited liability companies can give. Squadron forced a vote on the same bill last year. It passed, but never received a vote in the Senate’s corporations committee.

The Assembly’s environmental conservation committee is taking up a bill that would require companies shipping crude oil by rail to report information such as the route and schedule trains will be taking.
