Anchoring of Dressers and Televisions Required Under New Law

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation requiring the anchoring of large furniture and electronics at child care facilities. He said the measure “will help give parents peace of mind at a critical time in their child’’s lives and will help ensure that their homes or daycare facilities remain safe and secure environments.” The new law (S.3563A/A.29A) takes effect 180 days after its signing, and is one of three laws announced August 13, 2019, designed to keep infants safe.
