Reconstruction of the Route 250 bridge over the Erie Canal in Fairport will require the use of a detour to access my District Office (or to cross through the village for any other purpose) starting on Monday.  Please see the attached image that shows the truck and passenger vehicle detours through the heart of the village.

O’Brien and Senate pass gun control overhaul

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Senate passed a bipartisan overhaul of state gun laws late last evening.  This legislation features a balanced approach that preserves Second Amendment rights while increasing restrictions on assault weapons. It also has provisions to take away licenses from individuals with mental illness who, in the opinion of mental health professionals, would pose a danger to themselves or others should they possess guns. Senator Ted O’Brien was one of 43 senators who voted “yes” on the measure.
