In Executive Order, Cuomo Gives Agencies Another Month For Executive Compensation Rules

2

Gov. Andrew Cuomo today issued his second executive order in two days, this month giving state agencies another month to come up with regulations on how to monitor executive compensation to service providers.

The new order gives the agencies until May 16 to finish the rules.

Cuomo issued an executive order on Jan. 18 that requires agencies to control administrative costs and executive compensation to state-funded service providers. In some cases, the owners of the private entities were raking in big bucks on the public’s dime, the New York Times and the Journal News found.

Cuomo ordered that executive’s salary would be capped at $199,000 based on state funds. The state agencies are working on the regulations on how to manage that system.

Cuomo’s order says “WHEREAS, the many affected Executive State agencies have diligently worked to develop proposed regulations to implement Executive Order Number 38 that require an additional brief period to be finalized.”

Yesterday, Cuomo issued an executive order to create a health-care exchange.
