ALBANY, N.Y. -- A law involving pawn shops and secondhand dealers will go up for a vote tonight in the Albany County Legislature. Amendments have been made since the last time the legislation was put in front of the legislature four months ago.
If passed, the new law would create an electronic registry of all the items the store receives as a means of recovering stolen goods that may be pawned off. Dealers would have to report who the sellers are, and there would be a holding period on the goods.
There's no word if Albany County Executive Dan McCoy will veto the legislation if it passes.
