Review of New York State’s pension fund given the ok

An outside review of New York State’s $150 billion pension fund for public workers shows it fixed ethical problems that led to a “pay-for-play” scandal.

The review says state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, the fund’s sole trustee since the 2007 scandal, is meeting all applicable ethical and conflict-of-interest standards and is acting solely for the benefit of its 1 million workers and beneficiaries.
