Dept. of Justice: State Environmental Facilities Corporation must pay $500k
The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation will pay $500,000 after the agency said it had hired staff members who were actually working for former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Chamber.
The Department of Justice says the EFC certified that employees were supporting a clean water grant, when they were actually working directly for the former governor in unrelated positions.
During that time, the EPA awarded grant funds to the state in return.
