County Files Lawsuit To Stop Drivers Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants


(Troy, NY) -- Rensselaer County officials are filing a lawsuit to prevent the new Green Light Bill from going into effect. 

Earlier this week, Governor Cuomo signed the bill that would allow illegal immigrants to apply for driver's licenses. County Clerk Frank Merola and County Executive Steve McLaughlin say the governor didn't listen to the concerns of New Yorkers before approving the legislation.  McLaughlin says he's encouraging other counties to join Rensselaer County's legal action.
