SAFE Act big on Marchione’s agenda

SAFE Act big on Marchione’s agenda – Efforts to repeal the SAFE Act topped Sen. Kathy Marchione’s legislative priorities this year, in addition to initiatives to reform government and support the agricultural industry.  Of the roughly 100 policy-related bills the Halfmoon Republican sponsored, a little more than half stalled in the committee. About 20 passed the Senate but not the Assembly, and another 15 were passed by both chambers.  In addition to an unsuccessful bill to repeal the SAFE Act outright, Marchione also sponsored a series of initiatives to attempt to chip away at portions of the 2013 law that limited magazines to seven rounds, banned the sale of military-style assault weapons and required people who owned them to either register them with State Police or modify them.
