Alarming Bill trying to be passed in the NY State Assembly

Sunday, June 24, 2018 9:37 AM | Kerri Gianazza (Administrator)

This bill sets limitations on methods to control wildlife in and around airports and may compromise the effectiveness of these efforts.

 Bill S.6853-A (DeFrancisco) that addresses this critical problem passed the Senate but no longer has a companion in the Assembly. Assembly bill A.8646-B (Hunter) that previously matched the Senate bill has been amended, rendering its provisions ineffective in restoring these safety measures at many of the state‚Äôs commercial and general aviation airports.

Thus:

NYAMA urges the Assembly to recognize the vital importance of this legislation to public safety and to support the Senate bill S.6853-A or, in the alternative, the amendments proposed for A.8646-B
