Democratic state senators in Albany have introduced a bill that, if passed, would require that the state-level tax returns of anyone elected to federal or state office in a statewide election, including the president and vice president, be posted online, according to CNN Money. The sponsor, Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), feels that the state-level returns could give a decent snapshot of what's on the federal-level returns. A separate bill, also sponsored by Holyman, would require anyone appearing on a statewide ballot in New York to release their federal returns, though this wouldn't affect the president until 2020 when he runs for a second term. While the State Senate is currently controlled by Republicans, he feels the bill has a chance, as the majority is only maintained through several Democrats who have decided to join with the GOP.
