Gov. Andrew Cuomo once again threw cold water on calling a special session to consider ethics reform legislation, saying it “makes no sense” to do so.

Cuomo, speaking with reporters in Bolton Landing earlier in the day, said it was doubtful lawmakers would return to Albany in a special session to consider ethics legislation after they declined to pass any new measures at the end of the regularly scheduled session, which concluded in June.

“The point is, is there any reason to believe there would be a different outcome?” Cuomo said.

The first six months of the year in Albany was marred by a seemingly unprecedented parade of arrests that saw the indictments of the speaker of the Assembly and majority leader of the state Senate, both of whom were forced to step down from their posts as they fight their corruption charges.

“We have the highest ethical standards this state has ever had,” Cuomo told reporters this morning. “That is not going to stop people from doing stupid or criminal things as we’ve learned.”

Last week, two sitting state senators — Tom Libous and John Sampson — lost their seats after they were convicted in separate trials on corruption charges as well.

Cuomo had pushed lawmakers to approve a broad package of ethics reforms in the wake of Assemblyman Sheldon Silver’s arrest in January, but ultimately lawmakers approved a compromised version of the proposal, including the disclosure of outside legal clients.

Now, good-government groups are once again calling for a special session on ethics exclusively, with measures being pushed that include closing a loophole in campaign-finance law that allows for unlimited donations through limited liability companies.

Still, Cuomo is skeptical that lawmakers would be willing ton consider reaching an agreement on ethics just weeks after leaving Albany.

“The Legislature just left town a few weeks ago,” Cuomo said. “I don’t see any reason to believe there’s going to be a different outcome than there was a few weeks ago.”

At the same time, Cuomo questioned the cost of a special session, given the lack of a prospect of progress.

“For the taxpayers to spend a lot of money to bring the legislators back to Albany to have the same outcome they had a few weeks ago makes no sense to me,” he said. “My point is, the Legislature just left town a few weeks ago. What changed?”
