Bill Prompted by Cuomo Book Deal

The controversy in Albany over former Governor Cuomo's book deal has prompted legislation that would ban state officials from helping their co-workers with side businesses or money-making projects -- even on their own time.

A Democratic Senator from Long Island introduced the bill in the Senate Friday.

The state ethics commission accused Cuomo of using state resources and staffers to help write the book.

Cuomo says his multi-million-dollar book deal was aided by staff members working on their own time.
