NY: Should All 3d Misdemeanors in 10 be a Felony?

Marcus Molinaro introduced the Chronic Criminal Act to make 3d misdemeanor offenses within 10 years a felony. Not a terribly bad idea (if traffic offenses aren't included), but it appears dead in committee.

With the increasing policy of criminalizing behaviors it seems to me to be far too easy to rack up three misdemeanors in ten years. And they want to make this a felony with the loss of all professional licenses, voting, etc?
