The New York State Senate approved Brittany’s Law to increase the safety and awareness of communities by creating a registry of convicted violent felons. The bill establishes a statewide violent felony offender registry by requiring certain convicted felons to register with the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services upon release from prison. Brittany’s Law is named for a 12-year-old girl murdered in 2009 along with her mother in Ontario County. The killer was on parole at the time of the murder, serving 2 ½ years of a three-year sentence for assaulting his infantdaughter. The bill requires violent felony offenders to register with the state upondischarge, parole, or release from any facility, hospital, or institution. Similar to the state’s Sex Offender registry, violent felons would be assigned risk levels. Annual registration requirements and corresponding procedural guidelines would be established to allow local law enforcement agencies and the state to monitor the whereabouts of violent felony offenders. The bill is under consideration by the Assembly.

Sen. Charles Schumer said today he plans to introduce legislation for a new federal tax deduction that will help feed the hungry, boost the economy and tackle the growing deer population at the same time. Schumer said his bipartisan bill would offer a tax deduction to hunters who donate their game, such as deer or wild turkey, to anti-hunger programs. The deduction would be for the cost of processing the venison or other game. Venison processors also would benefit from the legislation, which would make all processing income they receive from charities tax-exempt . Schumer said his bill also would help the Upstate economy, noting that New York already ranks fourth among all states for the economic impact of its hunting industry. He wants to introduce his bill before this fall.
