‘Once signed into law, the measure would ban ski masks, or balaclavas, in public spaces like schools, recreation centers, parks, city-owned buildings and on public transportation.
It defines the garment as a close-fitting covering over the whole head, with holes only for the eyes, nose, or mouth.’
Those who violate the law would be hit with a $250 fine.
