GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- An anti-corruption panel in Nassau Country has recommended that the county base an anti pay-to-play contribution ban on Greenburgh's ethics laws.

The Greenburgh Town Board adopted what is probably the toughest law in the United States in 2007. The law prohibits incumbents from accepting campaign contributions from developers, contractors, lawyers, and agents.

Greenburgh is one of only three governments in New York that has an anti pay-to-play law, according to Newsday.

Elected officials in Nassau County and elsewhere have earned disapproval or legal action for casting votes or issuing contracts to vendors who make campaign contributions.
