A bill being proposed in the State Senate would subject the Queens Public Library to greater oversight.
The bill comes after controversy surrounding the high salary and alleged misuse of funds by the library's executive director.
State Senator Tony Avella is proposing legislation that would clean house of the library's board of trustees and set limits on who could be a member.
It would also limit outside employment for executive personnel and hold the institution accountable to budget transparency laws.
Executive Director Thomas Galante reportedly brought in a salary of nearly $400,000 per year for his job as executive director of Queens Public Libraries.
He also reportedly spent more than $120,000 in library money on renovations to his personal office last year.
He's currently under investigation by the city comptroller and the FBI.
However, a vote to suspend Galante by the library board of trustees resulted in a tie, allowing him to keep his job and salary.
