NY ethics panel: $210M spent lobbying last year

New York's ethics commission reports $210 million were spent on state and local lobbying last year.

ALBANY — New York's ethics commission reports $210 million were spent on state and local lobbying last year.

The Joint Commission on Public Ethics, in its 2013 annual report, says its enforcement cases resulted in more than $450,000 in penalties.

The report shows a record $191 million was spent last year on compensation for in-house and retained lobbyists.

Top spenders on lobbying included tobacco companies, teachers' unions and hospital groups.

The commission publishes the 2013 data on its website.

It has also posted financial disclosure statements by New York's four statewide elected officials and state legislators, including the values of their investments and outside incomes.
