Mayor Bloomberg and New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly joined veteran law enforcement officials today in urging City Council members to vote down two bills that are expected to be voted on this week.

Mayor Bloomberg says if enacted, the legislation would interfere with police officers' ability to protect New Yorkers.
