Fourteen Years and Three Days: Civil Confinement Passed At Last

Kolb heralds civil confinement passage as a positive, but long overdue
March 6, 2007

After first being introduced by the Assembly minority fourteen years and three days ago, civil confinement has finally passed the lower house of the New York Legislature.

Assemblyman Brian Kolb (R,C,I –Canandaigua) said, “I am pleased that the lackadaisical Assembly majority finally took heed to the grassroots demand of New Yorkers and allowed meaningful civil confinement legislation to be debated and voted on the Assembly floor. We pushed long and hard for this, and we are pleased to have kept this issue at the forefront of public policy which we could not have done without the support of the New York families who want to keep their loved ones safe.”
