DiNapoli Proposes Pension Forfeiture Bill

Albamy, NY (WIBX) -  If a public servant commits a felony related to their official duties they would lose their pension under new legislation propsed by state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli.

DiNapoli’s bill comes as Albany lawmakers discuss ethics reform.

“Often the question comes up, ‘How are they able to still collect a public pension?’ This would provide for a procedure to have those pension benefits forfeited. I think it sends a strong message about zero tolerance for the kinds of ethical lapses that we’ve seen too often in the state’s history,” DiNapoli said.

The legislation also addresses penalities for public employees across the state, by elevating the charge of official misconduct to a felony.
