The New York State Assembly voted Wednesday afternoon on an unusual piece of legislation, a bill directing the state's parks office to allow Nik Wallenda, of the "Flying Wallendas," to tightrope walk above Niagara Falls. Death-defying, tourism-friendly acts have long been outlawed at Niagara, but a companion bill had already passed the New York Senate.
