In Relation to Custody and Visitation Rights of a Sex Offender

Subject: S. 2481 /Flanagan A.3548/Gabryszak (AN ACT to amend the corrections law, in relation to custody and visitation rights of a sex offender) Position: Opposed This legislation would bar a court from granting an individual who is required to register as a sex offender the physical or legal custody of – or unsupervised visitation with – a child. This blanket prohibition is both unconstitutional as a matter of law and contrary to the best interests of New York’s children. Thus, we strongly oppose its passage.

Relating to Standardizing Penalties Associated with Marijuana Possession

Subject: A.7620/Jeffries, S.5187/Grisanti (Relates to standardizing penalties associated with marijuana possession) Position: Support This bill removes a provision from the penal code that makes it a misdemeanor to possess or burn a small amount of marijuana in public view. This would close a loophole in the law used to unjustly arrest tens of thousands of people each year – the vast majority of whom are black or Latino. The NYCLU strongly supports this bill.
