The Senate Republican Campaign Committee has withdrawn its motion to quash a request for additional, non-public information being sought by the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, according to a joint statement on Wednesday from the panel’s co-chairs.

The SRCC had filed a motion to quash subpoenas seeking additional information, including communications relating to campaign donations, from the campaign committee.

“We are pleased that the Senate Republican Campaign Committee has withdrawn its motion to quash the subpoenas issued by the Moreland Commission,” said co-chairs William Fitzpatrick, Kathleen Rice and Milton Williams. “Cooperation and reason prevailed and we look forward to continuing to work with the SRCC on this matter.”

The move comes after legislative leaders of the Senate and Assembly filed a legal challenge to Moreland’s authority in seeking more information on legislators’ outside income and business clients.

Updated: Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview after the news broke indicated that a compromise had been struck, which resulted in SRCC lawyers withdrawing the motion to quash the subpoena.

“They are now saying they will work it out,” Cuomo said while adding, “It’s very common to negotiate the scope of the subpoena. That’s a fine thing and a normal thing.”

According to a statement released by SRCC lawyer Michael Chertoff, the campaign committee will release a “limited set of documents” under the deal reached with the commission.

The agreement also stipulates that no internal communications would be released.

“In light of the Commission’s offer to withdraw most of its demands, the SRCC has agreed to produce a limited set of documents reflecting financial records and certain external communications associated only with the Committee’s housekeeping account,” Chertoff said. “Accordingly, the Committee will now withdraw its petition to quash the subpoena, while reserving its right to refile should circumstances warrant.”

Still, Cuomo believes the compliance by SRCC, even while limited, was a step forward in the ongoing Moreland investigation.

Lawyers for law firms that employ state lawmakers are still challenging subpoenas seeking more information on lawmakers’ private employment.

Cuomo said in the radio interview that SRCC’s compliance undermines the argument that the commission can’t investigate a separate branch of government. He called the separation of powers argument “baloney.”

“When you fight the subpoenas, it sounds like you have something to hide,” Cuomo said.

Updated X2: A spokesman for the Assembly Democrats, Michael Whyland, said the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee has already complied with the commission’s request for information last week.
