After it was criticized for holding its first public hearing in a relatively small meeting space that prevented some from entering, the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption today announced it would move its Tuesday meeting to a meeting room in the Empire State Plaza concourse.

The meeting was initially due to be held at The Crossings of Colonie, a park in suburban Albany.

But the panel announced this afternoon it would change the venue “to increase capacity.”

The upcoming hearing will focus on campaign finance, the outside income of state elected officials and soft-money accounts known as “housekeeping.”

Expected to testify the commission are good-government organization members Brian Paul of Commmon Cause, NYPIRG’s Bill Mahoney, Karen Scharff and Jessica Wiseneski of Citizen Action and Dick Dadey and Rachael Fauss of Citizen Union.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. with doors opening at 5 p.m.
