Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today is calling on the Senate to hold a hearing to examine the plan by the Governor and the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to force millions of motorists to pay a $25 tax to obtain a new license plate and another $20 tax to keep their current plate number, creating a $70 million windfall for state coffers.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today released a new analysis of a plan by the Governor and the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to force all motorists to pay a $25 tax to obtain a new license plate that would create a $70 million windfall for state coffers, at a minimum.
