POLITICAL ARENA

By Adam Wisnieski of RIVERDALE PRESS

State. Sen. Gustavo Rivera said he plans to introduce legislation on public safety and health, as well as reintroduce a bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo vetoed at the end of the year that would allow charitable organization to post bail on behalf of arrestees. Rivera said he wants to help police fight crime by creating a database of every security camera that aims at public spaces. That way, he said, police can easily find any cameras that might help solve crimes. Mr. Rivera also said he plans to introduce legislation stemming from his Bronx CAN (Change Attitudes Now) Health Initiative focusing on childhood obesity, nutrition and access to healthy food and anti-smoking legislation. He didn’t provide any details of the anti-smoking legislation, just that it will expand on current smoking bans.
