A pair of GOP legislators ripped New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday over the recent burst of water attacks on cops as they proposed a law that would make such drenchings a felony.

Assemblymen Mike LiPetri of Long Island and Michael Reilly of Staten Island announced their plan the same day the NYPD released video of the latest attack, which took place last week.

The bill would make it a Class E felony to throw or spray water or any other substance against an on-duty police officer, and would carry a possible maximum sentence of four years behind bars.

The bill’s unlikely to pass, as both the Assembly and Senate are controlled by Democrats, the New York Post reports.
