"The Baumes Laws were adopted by the State Legislature of New York through the recommendation of the New York State Crime Commission ... which Commission was instituted in 1926 for the purpose of inquiring into the crime situation in the state and suggesting measures for dealing with it. This Baumes Commission ... secured the adoptions of the first twenty 'Baumes Laws' in 1926, and ... additional legislation in 1927, 1928 and the current year ... Specific interest has centered, however, in the drastic provisions applying to persons convicted of habitual felonies, and the designation 'the Baumes Law' has become most specifically associated with the mandatory life imprisonment act for offenders convicted of a fourth felony."- Introd
