Lawmakers in Rockland County are working to tighten legislation against sexual predators.
State Assemblyman Ryan Karben (D-Rockland) introduced proposed legislation that will bar convicted sex offenders from public swimming pools across New York. Karben says a public pool can be a pedophile?s playground. Ramapo Supervisor Chris St. Lawrence commends the legislation and hopes it will work to protect children.
Karben hopes the bill will pass in January, be signed by Governor George Pataki (R-NY) and be in place for next season.
