Republican State Sen. Betty Little Would Like To See Limits On Outside Income

Much of the conversation around stopping corruption at the state capitol is centered around limiting lawmakers' outside income. North Country Republican State Senator Betty Little said while she believes working a job outside of legislative responsibilities can be beneficial, she would consider some restrictions.

“I would like to see a restriction on the amount of money that you can make outside. You have to wonder how somebody was making $400,000 or more and was speaker of the Assembly, when you have so much time to do that much work.”

Last year, leaders of both the Assembly and Senate were convicted on multiple corruption charges.
