Two years ago this month, a 3-year-old boy died after falling into a grease trap at the Tim Horton’s on University Avenue in Rochester.
After the tragedy, Bryce’s Law was drafted by local leaders to create statewide safety regulations for grease traps.
Assemblyman Harry Bronson says it doesn’t take much effort to secure a grease trap with material a young child can’t fall through.
Bryce’s Law has already passed in the New York State Senate and the New York State Assembly. It is expected to hit the governor’s desk this summer.
Assemblymember Sarah Clark says the bill has the potential to become a national law as well.
