County Clerks Call For Delay In Implementation Of Green Light Law
Twenty-seven County Clerks in New York State who have DMV responsibilities, including Oneida County Clerk Sandy DePerno, are calling on Governor Cuomo to delay implementation of the Green Light law until October of next year.
The clerks say following two hastily delivered webinars and a conference call, they agree that the New York State DMV failed to provide regulations that would ensure the integrity of the identification process for Standard Driver License applicants.
They say the State DMV has failed to put in place safeguards to prevent someone who has a social security number from signing the affidavit form claiming they’ve never been issued a social security number, enabling people to conceal their true identities.
Undocumented immigrants in New York will be able to apply for a drivers license beginning this weekend.
New Yorkers showing up at their local DMV office will be able to use alternative forms of identification, including passports issued in other countries.
Normally, those wanting a drivers license must have a Social Security number.
