Now online: a database of info from New York State legislators' diclosure forms for outside income and total wealth. (This is the first year for the forms under a new ethics law.) The easy-to-search database is a collaboration between the New York World, NYPIRG, and Common Cause. Their analysis concluded that the average household income for a state legislator in 2012 was between $178,140 and $237,941 (median household income in the state: about $56k). Over at the TU, Jimmy Vielkind pulled the numbers for Capital Region legislators.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
