Cattaraugus County Legislature Requests Extension For Pistol Permits

Gun owners need a break, according to Cattaraugus County lawmakers. They’re asking the state for an extension to the pistol permit recertification deadline that passed two weeks ago.
The county legislature voted unanimously to approve a resolution supporting bills in the state Assembly and Senate to extend the recertification 18 months. It was co-sponsored by 15 legislators.
The resolution, proposed earlier this month by the nine members of the county legislature’s new bipartisan majority, was amended in committees last week to include language declaring the SAFE Act was violating the Second Amendment and calling for its repeal.
The Olean City School District Board of Education plans to review their sexual harassment polices and other Civil Rights issues. The board unanimously agreed to renew policies that regarded equal educational and employment opportunities; complaints by students; sexual harassment of district personnel and students; program policies for athletics and career and technical education; the Dignity for All Students Act; and aprts of the Rehabilitation Act.
