Albany, NY (WIBX) - The New York State Senate today passed a measure that will make records about the potential safety of amusement park rides more accessible.

Although the New York State Department of Labor maintains an impressive record with regard to amusement park safety, the new law would make it easier for carnival-goers to view safety records and inspection data which will be posted online, with posters near the rides calling attention to the information available.

Some say that awareness of the posting alone will enhance safety.

The bill is being prepared for Assembly review.
