Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon on Monday released a package of ethics and campaign finance reforms that would dissolve the oft-criticized lobbying and ethics regulator in the state and replace it with a Moreland Commission.

At the same time, Nixon would empower the state attorney general’s office to tackle public corruption cases through what’s known as a standing referral.

The ethics proposals came as the “Buffalo Billion” trial gets underway in New York City, with several prominent developers, as well as the former president of SUNY Polytechnic, facing bid rigging and corruption charges stemming from economic development projects.

The broad strokes of Nixon’s additional proposals — public financing of public campaigns, closing the so-called LLC loophole in state election law, banning play-to-pay donations to campaigns — have been proposed in various forms over the years by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Nixon is challenging the governor for the Democratic nomination this September as he seeks a third term.

Cuomo has been a prodigious fundraiser during his two terms as governor and has often taken advantage of the state’s existing election laws, which government reform advocates have decried as too lax.

But Cuomo has also pushed the Legislature to take up term limits, as well as public financing of campaigns and the closure of the LLC loophole to little success.

Virtually every year Cuomo has been governor a new ethics package has been approved, forcing new disclosure requirements for lawmakers.

Still, Cuomo’s opponents contend that has not been enough.

“The unchecked influence of big money in state politics is why our state government currently serves to benefit corporations and the rich, leaving the rest of us behind,” Nixon’s campaign said.
