After the recent rash of swatting incidents across the Capital Region, and across the state, local lawmakers are fighting back.

They’re asking the state Senate to pass an anti-swatting bill to end “terror calls” on our schools.

The bill would heighten the penalty from a misdemeanor to a felony for false reports of an incident at a school or other location that brings about a large police presence.

The bill is being supported by State Senator Jim Tedisco, Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo and Ballston Spa Mayor Frank Rossi.
