The law prohibits the display or sale of hate symbols on any state property, including fairgrounds and parks.
Breaking911.com reports: No further guidelines were written into the bill–nor did it lay out who would determine what symbols would be deemed hateful.
State Senator Alessandra Biaggi (D-Bronx/Westchester), who sponsored the bill, issued the following statement:
“Symbols of hate have no place in our society, let alone on State property. With the signing of my bill, we are drawing a clear line in the sand. By limiting hateful symbols from being glorified on State property, New York will denounce images that represent violence while still acknowledging our nation’s shameful history of oppression. This bill allows New York State to lead by example, and discourage the perpetuation of symbols that do not represent our values of justice and inclusion. Today we say no to hate.”
The law takes effect immediately.
