The Green Light NY bill has been signed into law.
Under this measure, undocumented New Yorkers will be eligible to go through the same steps for a driver’s license as anyone else in New York State. This includes taking a driver’s education course, passing a driving test, and providing proof of New York State residency.
Thanks to the tireless work of advocates and the Green Light NY coalition, we will see improved safety on New York State roads, and tens of millions in annual revenues flow into the state. It will also free up law enforcement to concentrate on real public safety priorities.
This is a big win for New York. Please take a moment to thank Governor Cuomo and the state senators who helped make it possible.
