No New Regulations for Psychic Businesses in Babylon Village

Babylon Village

This past September, I posted about proposed new regulations for professional psychic readers in Babylon Village, Long Island.

The proposals included obtaining a license, being fingerprinted, buying liability insurance, and locating in the industrial part of town.

Last week, Babylon Village trustees decided to drop these proposals.

According to Newsday, village attorney Joel Sikowitz said the decision was based on ‘investigation, input from the public, and analysis of the facts.’

Though the regulations have been shelved for now, Mayor Ralph Scordino left the question open, with the possibility of revisiting it some time in the future.

Hopefully, they won’t find that necessary. I think they made a good decision.

    Thank you for the update.

    If the regulation had gone through there could be serious constitutional issues called to question. I think they made the wise choice, but did not wish to concede it was a bogus move thus legitimizing it by pretending there is the possibility of “revisiting” the regulation.

    Let’ all keep our eyes open for each other and support the legitimacy of our service.

    In Spirit,

      Thanks for your comment Katrina! And I agree, they were probably trying to avoid going to court about it. And since there’s only one psychic business in town, it’s hardly a ‘top of the agenda’ issue.

      And yes, we have to stand together.
