The New York State Commission on Lobbying, which was created in 1977, was replaced last year by the new Commission on Public Integrity. The Anderson Legislative Breakfast Seminar will address what the Lobbying Commission accomplished during its three decade existence, and what lessons there are for the work of the Commission on Public Integrity.

The seminar will be moderated by Albany Times Union columnist Fred LeBrun.

Panelists include: David Grandeau, Esq., former executive director, New York State Commission on Lobbying; James Featherstonhaugh, Esq., Featherstonhaugh, Wiley & Clyne, LLP; and Patrick Brown, Esq., Brown McMahon & Weinraub LLC.

The Warren M. Anderson Legislative Breakfast Seminar Series lectures are held monthly from February through May. Each seminar features experts who address legal aspects of a policy issue pending before the New York State Legislature. The late Warren M. Anderson was a distinguished alumnus of Albany Law School. He served in the New York State Senate for 35 years, and was known for his leadership during his tenure as President Pro Tem and Majority Leader from 1973 to 1988.
