Kolb (R,C,I-Canandaigua) and Senator Mike Nozzolio will hold a press conference today, Tuesday, May 20, at 2 p.m. in Room 124 of the State Capitol to push for the Assembly to pass Brittany’s Law. The bill was passed in the Senate and would create a registry of violent criminals.

The two were killed by John Edward Brown, who was on parole after serving time in prison for violently assaulting his infant daughter in 2003. Buchel was unaware of Brown’s violent criminal history.
