A NY law that will allow the release of President Trump's highly sought after state tax returns to Congress is now headed to the desk of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signaled support for the legislation in the abstract, though a spokesman said he'll review the bill carefully, the Associated Press reported. The other would require New York's tax commissioner to hand state tax returns over to Congress upon request made it out of committee on Tuesday.

However, it isn't clear if Congress will request the state tax returns at all. Lawmakers later narrowed the legislation to address concerns that it went too far, prompting the Senate to hold a second vote on the new language Wednesday.

"The New York State Legislature has stepped up to promote transparency while the U.S. Treasury Department has instead denied lawful requests for tax records from the House of Representatives", Assemblymember Buchwald said in a statement following Wednesday's vote. Much of the information submitted in NY state tax returns is similar to that on federal forms. The revisions would not change most of that, but they would allow NY prosecutors to pursue investigations into pardoned individuals who worked in a president's administration, campaign, transition team or a non-profit or business headed by a president if a crime occurred in the state of NY.

Trump's personal home and the headquarters for his business are in NY, requiring him to file state tax returns in addition to his federal returns. The Trump administration has since bucked several attempts from congressional Democrats to obtain the president's taxes and examine possible foreign entanglements and fraud.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said he wouldn't comply with a congressional subpoena seeking six years of the president's tax returns, in part because the request "lacks a legitimate legislative objective". Under federal law, the confidential information in the returns is supposed to be for the committee's eyes only.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the NY legislation.

The New York bills would become law immediately upon being signed by Cuomo, though it could be delayed by a court challenge.

The pardon bill allows for the prosecution at the state level of any individual who was employed by or served in the executive branch, served in a position subject to Senate confirmation, or worked for a presidential campaign or transition team, regardless of whether they had been pardoned or granted clemency by the president under which they served.
