The New York Senate Ethics Board hearing, which was canceled earlier this month, has been rescheduled.
Senator Alessand Raviage’s office has confirmed that the new date is August 25 and will be held directly in Albany.
Biaggi chairs the Senate Institutional Review Board, which considers ways to reform state ethics law.
The hearing will also review the Joint Committee on Public Ethics (JCOPE) to see if changes need to be made or if the ethics watchdog needs to be completely replaced.
JCOPE has been criticized for not investigating allegations of sexual harassment and other illegal activities.
Initially, the meeting was effectively scheduled before moving directly.
Members of the committee wanted to join from home via Zoom and were concerned about violating state public conferencing legislation.
Only two lawmakers traveled to Albany.
