LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - A lakeside Adirondack tourist village is considering a law that would restrict shop window displays of obscene t-shirts.

Lake George Mayor Robert Blais tells the Post-Star of Glens Falls (http://bit.ly/1QYloSm ) that the village has received complaints about displays of offensive T-shirts and other merchandise.

Blais said lawyers have been working for several years on a law that would stand up to free speech challenges while helping to keep Lake George family friendly. The proposal would regulate the public display of “child inappropriate materials” in the village.

Shop owner William Massry said he sees the law as a violation of his Constitutional rights and is prepared to fight it.

The draft of the law was released this week. A public hearing could come as soon as February.
