COLUMN: Productive session comes to close in Albany

— The Assembly passed a microstamping mandate for gun manufacturers. Luckily, this was not taken up by the Senate. This would have required gun manufacturers to produce an alpha-numeric code on expended cartridges. However, the technology is unproven and cartridges can be manipulated. I voted against this in the Assembly.

All in all, my colleagues and I undertook many initiatives this year to enhance the quality of life for all New Yorkers. While there is still more work to be done to provide the mandate relief for our counties and promote economic growth, several steps were taken in 2012 to put New York back on track and create a state we can be proud of again.

Assemblyman Will Barclay represents residents of Assembly District 120, which includes Lysander. He can be reached by mail at 200 North Second St., Fulton, NY 13069, by e-mail at barclaw@assembly.state.ny.us or by phone (598-5185).
