State Senator Wants To Allow Lawsuits If People Are Stopped From Recording Cops

State Sen. Ruben Diaz (credit: CBS 2)

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, introduced a bill Thursday in which someone who is stopped from videotaping a police officer could sue for $25,000.

In introducing the bill, Diaz noted that videotaping police officers is already legal, unless it interferes with police work.

“They do not allow anyone to record them, or to videotape them, claiming that they are interfering with police activity,” Diaz told WCBS 880.

Legislative Notebook: State Initiatives of Interest to Veterans

Here is a partial listing of bills I have supported this session to aid New York’s former servicemen and servicewomen. These initiatives will now go to Governor Cuomo for final action.

-- Legislation I co-sponsored was passed by both houses (S.7839, first introduced as S.4714)) to extend the Military Service Credit Law of 2000 to all veterans who have served in the military. Right now, public employees who served in the armed forces may purchase up to three years of pension credit only if their military service occurred during specified conflicts. This measure will expand this opportunity to public employee veterans who also served their country in peacetime.
