The Driver's License Access and Privacy Act, commonly called the 'Green Light law', went into effect on December 16, 2019. It allows undocumented immigrants, and any other resident of New York, to apply for specialized driver's licenses from their local Department of Motor Vehicles offices. 

According to the Spectrum News website, the new law loosens some of the rules put in place after 9/11 to crack down on document fraud. A Social security number is no longer necessary to apply for a license, and DMV clerks no longer ask applicants about their immigration status.  Applicants will be able to submit alternate forms of identification, including passports or driver's licenses from other countries.

Many clerks across the state have been troubled by what have been called the limited and rushed instructions provided by the state.  Members of the Association of County Clerks are preparing to call on Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Mark Schroeder to delay implementation of the Green Light law until Oct. 1, 2020, when the more stringent REAL ID law takes effect, according to The Buffalo News article on December 12, 2019.


Michael "Mickey" Kearns, Erie County Clerk

Michael P. Kearns was sworn in as the Erie County Clerk on December 5, 2017. A life-long resident of South Buffalo, Michael “Mickey” Kearns graduated from Bishop Timon High School. He earned an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies from Erie Community College and Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Canisius College. He has served as an elected official since 2006 as the South District Council Member in the City of Buffalo and in 2012 was elected New York State Assemblyman to represent the 142nd District (then the 145th district). As Erie County Clerk, he prioritizes excellent customer service while efficiently and effectively serving the people of Erie County.
