December 23, 2018. This article discusses the benefits of reinstating access to driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants in New York State. Granting access to driver’s licenses would ensure that more motorists have proven basic competency through written and practical exams, and also would allow crime victims to feel more confident in reporting crime and interacting with the criminal justice system.
According to Fiscal Policy Institute, state and county governments would receive an estimated $57 million in combined annual revenue and $26 million in one-time revenue, based on the 265,000 new licenses that are estimated to be issued if Green Light NY passes. Insurance premiums for all New Yorkers would be reduced by $17 per year.
