BUFFALO, NY-- A Western New York lawmaker wants to limit the types of jobs that sex offenders can have.
Erie County Legislator Daniel Kozub (D) proposed a law Friday that would create exclusion zones so sex offenders cannot interact with children.
The idea of the law is to prevent convicted sex offenders from working at any location where a minor would be present at the same time. Places like daycares, camps or haunted houses.
Kozub says having a law like this in Erie County is a start, but he'd like to see more done too.
Introducing this legislation is one of Kozub's last acts as a lawmaker.
His last day as an Erie County Legislator is December 31, 2011.
He says he hopes the incoming legislators and county executive pass the law.
