The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association is trying to convince lawmakers to change their vote on two controversial bills.

Union members have been passing out flyers to constituents of City Council members who supported the bills.

On Wednesday, they were in David Weprin's district in Bayside, Queens.

"He is not voting the will of the people that live here, who want safety and who want to support law enforcement and police officers and support how they do their job," said PBA President Pat Lynch. "These two bills, the IG bill and the racial profiling bill, will have a chilling effect on how police officers do their job."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to veto both bills before returning them to the City Council for an override vote.
