The St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators tonight unanimously approved the resolution opposing the NY SAFE Act law.
Approximately thirty citizens came out to support and speak to the legislators urging them to pass the resolution and call on the state representatives and Governor Cuomo to repeal the law.
During the brief legislative debate tonight in Canton, Legislator Dan Parker (R-Potsdam) entered a resolution to change the resolution to clearly call for the SAFE Act’s repeal. Also, Legislator Kevin Acres (R-Madrid) submitted a resolution to commend the state senators and assembly members that voted against the SAFE Act in Albany. Both of those resolutions were defeated.
