Let's Green Light Equal Access to Driver's Licenses

Equal access to driver’s licenses will make our roads safer, allow immigrants to lead fuller lives, raise state revenue, and reduce the risk that a routine traffic stop can result in arrest, detention, or even deportation due to President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.

Gov. Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins have signaled their support. Now let’s make sure this bill actually comes up for a vote this session.

Sample script: “Hello, my name is _______________ and I am calling to thank Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins for her recent public comments in support of equal access to driver’s licenses for undocumented New Yorkers.

I would like to ask, however, what steps she is taking to generate more support for the bill. Will the majority leader fight to include it in the final version of the state budget? If not, will she bring our bill to a vote by April 10?

I would like a response to these questions. When can I expect a follow-up phone call or email?

Thank you for your time and for your office’s leadership on this important issue.”
