A10151 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10151
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Cunningham)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to eliminating noting an address change on driver licenses and non-driver identifica- tion cards 1.   PURPOSE: This bill would eliminate the requirement that a person write a change of address on the back of his or her driver license or non-driver iden- tification document ("NDID"). 2.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill would amend. Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) § 492(3) to eliminate the requirement that a person record a change of address on the NDID. Section 2 of the bill would amend vn, § 505(5) to eliminate the require- ment that a person record a change of address on the driver license. The bill would take effect immediately. 3.   EXISTING LAW: Currently, a person must record a change of address on the back of his or her driver license or. NDIDin addition to notifying the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles in writing within 10 days after a change of residence occurs. 4.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: These amendments were approved for introduction and introduced in 2013 by A.9914/S.7272. On June 19, 2014, the bill passed the Senate, was delivered to the Assembly, and referred to transportation. 5.   STATEMENT IN SUPPORT: Photo IDs have limited surface area and incorporate many pieces of information. Modem technology and access to electronic records make it easier for agencies and law enforcement to look up a person's current address. Likewise, customer submissions for a change of address can be nearly instantaneous via use of an online transaction. The requirement that licensees note a change of residence on their license or NDID in the place provided is impractical since the surface material of license documents makes writing on them difficult. Eliminating this requirement would free up precious space on licenses and NDIDs. DMV is required to record a large and ever-increasing amount of information on driver licenses, including data regarding the many types of driver license endorsements and restrictions for commercial and noncommercial licensees, and information pertaining to Real ID or Enhanced ID, organ donor status, and veteran status. Elimination of this requirement will facilitate DMV's fulfillment of legal, administrative and law enforcement mandates and needs regarding data elements that today's licenses and ND1Ds are called upon to satisfy. 6.   POSSIBLE OBJECTIONS: None known. 7.   OTHER STATE AGENCIES INTERESTED: The Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance is interested in this bill, a copy of which has been Sent. 8.   KNOWN POSITION OF OTHERS: Unknown. 9.   BUDGET IMPLICATIONS: None. 10.   LOCAL IMPACT: None.
