Proposal 2 seeks action on pensions for convicted officialsPosted: Updated:
New York voters will decide this Election Day if the pensions of elected officials and other public employees should be revoked if they're convicted of felonies related to their official positions.
Proposal 2 defines public officers first and foremost as an elected official, but then goes on to name other types of officials who could have their pensions taken away, including heads of local departments, divisions or bureaus.
If approved, the amendment would apply to public officers who commit job-related crimes after Jan. 1 of next year.
