State Senate OKs Brittany's Law, Assembly Gets Bill Next

Albany, NY -- Once again, the state Senate has passed Brittany's Law, and once again the measure faces an uncertain future in the state Assembly.

The bill named for murdered Geneva girl Brittany Passalacqua would create a public registry of freed violent offenders.

Britanny's grandmother -- Dale Driscoll -- is frustrated that the bill has been stalled in the Assembly for three years. She says the public has a right to know the freed sex offenders and wonders why the same right doesn't extend to violent offenders.

Brittany and her mother were killed in 2009 by her mother's boyfriend -- a man who had served prison time for assaulting an infant.
