Jewelry store owners voice opinions on new legislation | News
Jewelry store owners in Albany County are voicing their concerns over a bill that the legislature has already passed.
The bill requires all purchases and sales of second-hand jewelry in the county be reported to Albany police.
At a public hearing Monday night, store owners say they agree with the spirit of the bill and want to protect theft victims but, they say the language needs to be re-worked.
County Executive Dan McCoy says if the legislature decides to change the law within the required 90-days, there will be another public hearing.
