Senator Kenneth P. LaValle has lined up a variety of initiatives he would like to have acted on before the end of this legislative session. Senator LaValle is working on measures that impact communities in the First Senate District, as well as legislation that would affect all Long Island residents.
Senator Kenneth P. LaValle would like to remind the public that the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) now issues Enhanced Driver Licenses (EDLs) and Enhanced non-driver IDs, which meet identification and citizen requirements for travel to and from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean.
