Abstract

In New York State this year, the legislature has already seen the resignation of its Assembly Speaker and Senate Majority leader over allegations of corruption. But how prevalent are legal forms of patronage in the government of the Empire State? In new research which looks at earmarking in New York, Yonghong Wu and Daniel W. Williams find that the smaller Republican controlled Senate has allocated far more money than the Democratic controlled Assembly.
