The Legislature had previously announced 16 applicants to be questioned by the committee, which was down to 13 on Tuesday, following dropouts from David Yassky, the chairman of the Taxi and Limousine Commission who is also a former member of the New York City Council; former Assistant Secretary of State Jose W. Fernandez; and Hudson Valley Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney.

More than a dozen candidates have submitted a resume and cover letter for the appointment, including Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who said she wouldn't run for the election.

The State Legislature on Tuesday was scheduled to begin interviewing more than a dozen candidates to fill the role on an interim basis until December 31, when Schneiderman's term ends.

"I think it's an understatement to say that none of us expected to be sitting here today for this objective", Underwood told senators and Assembly members gathered Tuesday at a meeting room in the state Capitol complex.

"It's time to put people ahead of politics, and ultimately let the voters decide who their next attorney general will be", Flanagan said in a statement.

"I'm not sleeping very much", she said with a laugh.

Underwood has said she will not run in November. Republicans have criticized Cuomo for chiming in on the attorney general selection process, saying the state's top legal agency must remain independent from the governor's office.
