From the Morning Memo:

New York lawmakers today will step up their efforts to force President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.

Assemblyman David Buchwald and Sen. Brad Hoylman will rally at the Capitol for a bill that would make disclosure of up to five years’ worth of tax information by the president, vice president and statewide elected officials.

The rally comes a week before taxes are due in the United States and as Democrats in Washington are preparing to subpoena for the president’s taxes.

“High level elected officials, particularly those who run government departments or are next in line to be a chief executive, hold an especially important place within the public trust,” the bill’s memo states. “For a representative democracy to run well, the public must have confidence that our elected officials work on the people’s behalf.”

By tradition, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, as well as Comptroller Tom DiNapoli have annually released their state and federal tax filings to reporters for public view. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, during his time in office, also made his tax filings public.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, now a presidential candidate for the Democratic nomination, has also posted her tax filing online.

The president so far has bucked a tradition for presidents dating back to Richard Nixon’s time in office.
