Scope and Content Note

This series consists of the minutes of commission meetings and a minute book that also includes copies of subpoenas, affidavits of service, and advisory letters to the attorney general sent by the commission. The minutes document the development of policy for the identification of projects to be undertaken by staff and the process of decision-making relating to the commission's investigation into violations of ethical or legal standards of conduct by public officials and employees.

Some of the minutes contain manuscript notes, and one section of the minute book apparently represents the files of Marilyn Bodner, who is listed as an attendee of the meetings and who may have served as note-taker.

The minutes may include all or some of the following: meeting agenda, roll of members present/absent, and copies of pertinent memoranda to commission members; synopses of status of investigations in progress, including some summaries of evidence; copies of statements, speeches, and presentations made by commission members on issues such as campaign financing, proposed codes of ethics, and commission reports; and drafts of commission reports, opinion memoranda on legislation, and other staff analyses.

The minute book includes: copy of the ethical guidelines of the commission; copies of commission minutes from April 29, 1987-October 16, 1989; and copies of advisory letters to the attorney general (in accordance with Executive Law) regarding the numbers of subpoenas served by the commission, with copies of the subpoenas and affidavits of service.
