Senate OKs bill to make graffiti vandals clean up

The state Senate passed a bill to make graffiti vandals clean up their own mess through community service programs.

The legislation will require courts to assign anyone convicted of making graffiti, or being in possession of a graffiti instrument, to participate in a local graffiti removal program.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. Jeffrey Klein (D-Bronx). The senator works with a graffiti removal program that cleans up vandalized sites throughout the Bronx.
