Some homeless legislation could affect Bronx residents

Lawmakers may have wrapped up the 2005 session but they didn?t wrap up all the issues they were debating.

A few unresolved measures range from sex offenders to money offenders. One unfinished objective dealt with strengthening Megan?s Law so the public is more aware when sex offenders move into neighborhoods. Approximately 3,000 sex offenders are still scheduled to gain anonymity from public registry at the end of 2006.

Other issues unsettled are the expansion of charter schools, raising judicial pay, revamping the campaign finance law and redistricting overhauls.

Some of the unresolved legislative pieces may be addressed at a mini-session or the 2006 session.
