The State Senate passed a bill Tuesday that would bar all sex offenders from living within 1,350 feet of any school, park, playground or day care center. The bill was brought to the Senate floor by Sen. George D. Maziarz, R-Newfane, after criticism by Niagara County Legislature Democrats of Maziarz’s own bill, which would have instituted a 1,500-foot buffer zone, but only within Niagara County. It passed the Senate May 21 but has no Assembly sponsor. Tuesday’s bill, which passed 59-3, was a duplicate of one introduced by Assemblyman Robin Schimminger, D-Kenmore. It remains buried in committee in the Assembly.
