The New York State Joint Commission on Public Ethics (“Commission”) today announced that it has posted the 2018 Annual Statements of Financial Disclosure (“FDS”) of the Statewide elected officials and members of the Assembly and Senate who were in office as of the May 15 filing deadline.
By law, those disclosures are required to be posted to the website at https://jcope.ny.gov/financial-disclosure-statements-elected-officials. Most disclosures are due to the Commission by May 15 each year; however, members of the Legislature first submit their filings to the Legislative Ethics Commission, which then has until June 30 to turn them over to the Commission for public disclosure.
In addition, the financial disclosure statements of the following are available upon request:
- State officials and employees who are required to file because they have been determined by their agency to be a policy maker or because they earn an annual salary that is equivalent to a CSEA SG-24 job rate (currently $99,394);
- Legislative employees who have been determined to be policy makers or who earn above the CSEA SG-24 job rate;
- Candidates for the four Statewide elected offices; and,
- Candidates for the Legislature
Those requests can be made by going to https://jcope.ny.gov/records_request and submitting the fillable form.
