List of Wealthiest Lawmakers Has Poor N.Y. Showing

WASHINGTON -

New York state’s Congressional delegation made a poor showing in The Hill’s annual list of the 50 wealthiest lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

While California’s Rep. Darrel Issa led the list with a net worth of $355 million, New York’s wealthiest came in at a mere No. 16. Rep. Chris Collins from Erie County has an estimated net worth of $22.3 million.

Other New Yorkers in the top 50 include Rep. Richard Hanna, who comes in at No. 25 with $14.4 million, Nita Lowey at No. 27 with $12.8 million, and Carolyn Maloney at No. 31 with $11.2 million. Neither of New York’s U.S. senators made the list, though Kirsten Gillibrand was noted for being “barely in the black with a net worth of $166,000.”
