Legislators spar over non-agenda committee items

by Carol Thompson

Oswego County Legislator Doug Malone attempted to bring up two issues during Monday’s meeting of the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee- but he was not allowed to speak.

Malone, a member of the committee, wanted to address the issue of his failure to receive a financial disclosure form as well as the length of the Health and Human Services Committee meetings.

None of the Democrat legislators received the financial disclosure form that is required to be filled out and Malone, because it is the jurisdictional committee, attempted to address the matter.

In addition, Malone said the Health and Human Services Committee meetings run too long. For several months, legislators have discussed splitting the jurisdiction of the committee so that the Department of Social Services falls under its own jurisdictional committee.
