State Sen. Rob Ortt
State Sen. Rob Ortt says he's hopeful an agreement can be reached between both houses of the New York State Legislature and the governor's office.

Earlier today, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced an agreement between the Assembly and the governor's office on a five-point ethics reform plan. That agreement, however, has not been approved by the state Senate.

Asked his opinion on the matter, Sen. Ortt called for greater transparency and disclosure — one of the tenet's of the Assemby/Executive deal.

Ortt's statement on the matter follows in its entirety:
As a state Senator who’s new to Albany, I believe the system must require greater transparency and disclosure to strengthen the public’s trust in government. With ongoing discussions between the legislature and the governor, I’m hopeful we can reach an agreement on campaign finance and ethics reform, as well as a multitude of other issues, including tax relief, school funding, and infrastructure improvements to deliver an on-time budget.
