Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, has drafted a resolution that could lead to the expulsion of Assemblyman Vito Lopez, D-Brooklyn.

The resolution requires that the allegations against Lopez be considered by the Assembly Standing Committee on Ethics and Guidance, which could offer sanctions, including expulsion.

Below is the full text of the resolution.

According to a release, the Assembly will vote on the resolution on Monday.

Lopez said earlier today that he plans on resigning at the end of the legislative session, although there has been a call for him to step down immediately.
