ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An agency in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration has rejected a public records request relating to state housing loans to a real estate firm in the middle of an ongoing investigation into Albany corruption.

The denial of the request was first noted by International Business Times, which reported it was filed by Republican researcher Daniel Miller in an attempt to get information on subsidized loans given to real estate developer Glenwood Management.

Former Senate Leader Dean Skelos is fighting allegations that he sought payments for his son from Glenwood in exchange for his influence. Glenwood is not accused of any wrongdoing.

The state’s Housing Finance Agency refused to release the requested records, citing U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s ongoing investigation.

A spokeswoman says Tuesday the agency is cooperating with authorities.
