JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Running late on a library book? You’re in luck. One local branch is joining the movement to go “Fine Free.”

The Johnstown Library is no longer charging fines on late or overdue items – even fines that currently outstanding.

Library Director Erica Wing said they felt charging fines actually did more harm than good and wasn’t generating much revenue.

“We’re hoping that it removes barriers for library usage,” she said. “You know, money really shouldn’t really be an issue when you come to the library and are checking items out. So we’re hoping people come see us that either haven’t been in quite sometime because they think they have fines on their card or don’t want to use us because they may incur fees.”

The Albany Public Library also no longer charges late fees on overdue books, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Summer is the time of year when many New Yorkers take limos for events like weddings and family celebrations.

While the state legislature took up several pieces of limo safety regulation this session, not much was passed by both chambers.

This session, of the Senate’s package of nine limo safety bills, only one increasing insurance limits also passed the Assembly.

“To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. That’s, simply put the Assembly and the Senate transportation committees should have been working together this entire session,” Assemblymember Angelo Santabarbara said.

Last month, Senator Jim Tedisco wrote letters to the Senate Majority Leader, Assembly Speaker, and Governor urging for an “Extraordinary Session.”

Now, Assemblymember Santabarbara is sponsoring three more bills on limo safety, giving some family members of crash victims hope.

“It looks like they’re seeking common ground on the bills and the language in the bills. We didn’t really see that before, but we are seeing it within the past week or two,” Kevin Cushing, a parent of one of the crash victims, said.

The bills would require seat belts and emergency window exits on vehicles with nine or more passengers, operators with nine or more passengers to have a commercial driver’s license, and the DOT to impound vehicles that don’t have functioning horns.

“It’s important the DOT has that authority to be able to take those vehicles off the road and make sure they stay off the road,” Santabarbara said.

Cushing says gaining an Assembly sponsor on some of the Senate bills is “a great first step.”

“There’s more to do, but we understand that good legislation takes time and we’re as family members anxious to work with both the Senate and the Assembly in seeing good legislation pass,” Cushing said.

They hope to get the laws on the books as soon as possible.

The package of nine Senate bills passed the chamber with no opposition.

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — NEWS10 ABC received a sneak peek of the new sports betting lounge scheduled to open Tuesday at Rivers Casino in Schenectady. If everything goes as planned, the casino in Schenectady will be the first in New York State to offer sports betting.

The Rivers Sportsbook may be small by Vegas standards, but the idea is an exciting one for Rivers Casino patrons.

As of Monday, the New York State Gaming Commission has not yet signed off on the casino’s license for sports betting. But Acting General Manager/Vice President Justin Moore says he is very optimistic that it will happen before Tuesday morning’s scheduled grand opening. A Commission spokesperson would not officially comment on the matter, only to say that “Commission officials will be on hand at tomorrow’s event.”

New York is joining more than a dozen other states allowing sports betting after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law excluding sports betting everywhere except in Nevada. Online sports gambling is currently illegal in New York.

The Rivers Sportsbook will allow for betting on events like UFC, professional football, baseball, basketball as well as non-NY college sports. So if the Syracuse basketball team is playing against Duke, even if it’s an out of state event, you cannot bet on the game.

The casino is also offering more than a dozen kiosks for sports gaming.
