Questions for the Attorney General

Later this morning, Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo will be discussing Cuomo’s transition into the attorney general’s office.

In addition to whatever process issues they’ll be talking about, I’m wondering if they might touch on a couple of outstanding policy matters, including the question of how Cuomo will handle the pesticide lawsuit Spitzer filed against HUD that includes the years Cuomo led that agency, and where exactly Cuomo stands on the tough Sarbanes-Oxley rules on corporate accountability that Spitzer doesn’t want weakened, but people like Chuck Schumer and Mike Bloomberg say could harm the city’s ability to attract businesses.

If anyone else has any information (or educated guesses) about what’s going to be on the agenda, let us know.
