The Republican conference in the State Assembly offered up ideas Wednesday on how to combat corruption at the state capital.

Assemblyman Cliff Crouch says the focus of the conference was on giving New York voters ability to hold recall elections.

“It has to be a constitutional and this is the first stage,” he said. “The ink still has to be dried out on the proposal. I think in general if you ask a person on the street ‘Would you like an opportunity to recall your elected officials if you think he has done something that is not right or is not representing the district?’ — we’re in favor of putting this up on the ballot to give the people an opportunity to decide.”

Crouch adds that the proposal of recall is not necessarily new. It is being done in 19 other states.
