According to New York Senator Patrick Gallivan, who has voiced his opposition to the new legislation, the SAFE Act’s time frame was constitutional, but he noted that its backers did not allow any time for government officials to bring the act back to their districts for discussion or to consult experts, about the matter.
“I think it’s a poor law,” Krebs said. Lohrey concurred, adding, “It’s just a big photo op. It won’t do what it says it will do.”
All present board members except Chamberlin voted in favor of backing the association of governments’ opposition to the SAFE Act.
