New York Passes Law Giving Congress Access To Trump's State Tax Info
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that would require the release of the president's state tax returns if certain committees request them.
New York has passed a law that could give Congress a way to access some of President Donald Trump's financial records.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation on Monday. It would require New York's tax commissioner to release the president's state returns if the head of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee or the Joint Committee on Taxation requests them. Lawmakers would have to outline a "specified and legitimate legislative purpose" in any request.
Sen. Brad Hoylman, who sponsored the bill, said of the signing: "No one is above the law. Not even the President of the United States."
It's unclear if any committees plan to request President Trump's state returns, but House Democrats filed a complaint last week seeking his federal personal and business tax returns from the last six years. The House oversight committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Financial Services Committee are also trying to obtain those records.
