Glens Falls Considering Putting Regulations on Political Rallies

The city of Glens Falls is often the scene of political rallies, many outside Congresswoman Elise Stefanik's office.

Now, the city's Common Council is considering a local law that would place regulations on those protests.

It's a fairly lengthy list, and includes things like requiring groups of 25 or more to apply for a "demonstration declaration" at least 10 days before a rally.

It also prohibits people from wearing facial coverings or breaking up into smaller groups during the rally.

Agata Stanford, head of New Resistance USA, says she feared for her safety during a rally in August.

But those on the other side of the political spectrum say this works both ways.

Public hearing is set for October 22nd.
