Bill to Bar Convicted Sex Offenders from Serving as Supers Advances
There have been several instances in which tenants were assaulted by building superintendents who are convicted sex offenders. Because it is outrageous that a Level-3 sex offender could legally be entrusted with access to dozens of New Yorkers' apartments, I wrote and introduced legislation to make it illegal for convicted sex offenders to work as building superintendents. The bill, A. 1122A, was recently approved by the Assembly's Housing Committee and is awaiting action in the Codes Committee. I will keep you updated on its progress during this legislative session.
