Clerk's Office Busier Since NYSAFE

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) In the one year since the NYSAFE Act took effect, it's become a very busy time inside Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs' office.

"We have certainly seen a dramatic increase in applications and amendments, in particular the first four months when the NYSAFE Act took effect," says Jacobs. He says there was a 40 percent increase in transactions from 2012 to 2013 in that first four month period.

Jacobs says in addition to the applications, he says 30,000 permit holders applied to opt-out of having their records made public. "Our office has gone through about half of them," says Jacobs, who adds his limited staff has also dealt with a number of questions regarding NYSAFE.
