Update on Lobbyist Ski Story

According to the Times Union Blog:

Gov. George Pataki has directed NYPA to review its policies and state Assemblyman Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, chair of the Assembly Energy Committee, is drafting a letter that will call on NYPA to release documents that reveal who attended the last six Congressional Winter Challenges.

The Gillibrand Press Release on the subject points out that:

This latest set of questions about Sweeney’s behavior comes on the heels of revelations that he is being probed by the Justice Department; that he cosponsored a food labeling bill for which his former top aide was a chief lobbyist; that he hosted a ski-weekend fundraiser in Park City, Utah with a pharmaceutical industry lobbyist; and that he has a political action committee (PAC) run by a high-profile lobbyist who has regular business before Sweeney’s House Appropriations Committee.
