Senator Sepúlveda Celebrates Passage of Bill Promoting Driver License Reciprocity in New York State

Albany, NY - Senator Sepúlveda is thrilled to announce the successful passage of Bill S4329A in the New York State Senate. This significant legislative achievement paves the way for driver license reciprocity agreements between New York State and other states, countries, provinces, or territories. 

Bill S4329A, sponsored by Senator Sepúlveda, aims to authorize the commissioner of motor vehicles to enter into agreements that allow for the recognition and exchange of valid driver's licenses between jurisdictions. The bill ensures that license holders from other states or countries meet the same high standards and adhere to the same rules and regulations as New York driver license holders, prioritizing the safety of our roadways. 

The passage of this bill is the culmination of collaborative efforts and valuable contributions from various individuals and organizations. Senator Sepúlveda expresses sincere appreciation to Assemblyman Phil Ramos and Assemblyman Manny de los Santos of the New York Assembly for their support in advancing this bill through the legislative process. 

Furthermore, the conversations with technicians from the Taiwan Embassy, led by their honorable ambassador, and the invaluable discussions with technicians from the Dominican Republic, particularly Director Hugo Beras of Intrant, have shaped the provisions of this bill and contributed to its success. 

Senator Sepúlveda extends gratitude to Senator John Liu for his leadership and unwavering support throughout the development of this bill. Additionally, special recognition is given to New York Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins for her leadership and for opening the doors of New York to the world. 

The passage of Bill S4329A signifies a significant step forward in promoting economic growth, international cooperation, and the safety of our citizens. This legislation will provide greater flexibility for New Yorkers working abroad and business people from other countries residing in New York to obtain driver licenses. 

Senator Sepúlveda looks forward to the positive impact this bill will have on businesses, communities, and the state as a whole. This achievement underscores New York's commitment to fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment for all residents and visitors.
