Around New York State

NEW YORK (WIVB)–New York State is giving out a lot more drivers licenses.

The state gave out almost 65,000 licenses last month, the first full month under the Green Light Law.

That’s more than double the amount issued in January of 2019.

The state DMV did not say how many of these new licenses were given to illegal immigrants because they’re not allowed to ask people about their citizenship status.
