Statement by Senator Jeffrey D. Klein, (D-Bronx/ Westchester), on DNA Databank Expansion:

“New York has the dubious distinction of having more than 10 percent of the country's cold cases, and less than 5 percent of criminal DNA profiles in the U.S. That’s why I sponsor legislation that would expand New York State’s DNA Databank.  I applaud Governor Cuomo for making DNA Databank expansion a priority this legislative session.
