Albany,New york, Today democrat Hon .Brian Scavo said
" I would think that our elected officials would have better things to do then put in place another useless law such as this smoking ban, in Albany as well as Schenectady the taxpayers are looking for real soulotions for jobs and lower taxes, stop the madness and get down to the real important issues."
UPDATE :THIS is NOW LAW, let's get stupid!
Schenectady city councils expected to pass a resolution Aug. 27 to ban smoking throughout its more than 20 parks, a law that would mirror similar bans in the neighboring suburban communities of Niskayuna, Rotterdam and Glenville.
Many other Capital Region municipalities, like Bethlehem and Cohoes, urge no smoking in the park areas frequented by children, but have yet to apply the rule to all their parklands. In February, Albany instituted a smoking ban on its playgrounds, fields and outside its pool areas.
Albany Common Council member james sano said an outright smoking ban for Albany would likely not be far behind.
