1st Meeting of Senate Ethics Committee -- February 28, 2019 
(4 minutes/4 seconds)  

"State Ethics Committee Moves Bill to Create Non-Partisan Legislative Budgeting Office"

S.3287  this bill creates to provide analysis to the legislature on the state budget and legislation,
to do fiscal studies and submit reports

Breslin: "Just mention that it is an excellent idea.  Long overdue  it would give us an objective seat, not a partisan review or republican versus democrat, democrat versus republican. And that we will be able to look to and trust. 
Bailey: "When we talk about the fiscal health of our state, we can't afford to be partisan.  I fully agree with the intent of this bill and support it. 
Biaggi: "Move the bill.  Fantastic.  Wonderful. The bill is moved out of this committee" 

I wanted to make one closing comment, if I may.  I know that this committee was not a regular committee in terms of its meetings and what it set out to do. but I not only intend to do that but to have it be a living, breathing committee that has regular hearings and takes very, very seriously. Any suggestions about how we can make this committee better and how we can make it as lively as possible.  That includes to bring speakers in to it.  And to think broadly. I think we have a very long horizon in terms of who we can bring on."
