(WBNG) — Cuomo’s office said it has no plans to move forward with its mandatory license plate replacement plan.
Originally, Cuomo had announced the license replacement program will require drivers to pay $25 to replace their old plates and an additional $20 if you would like to keep the same plate number.
There was strong opposition to this plan on both sides of the aisle. Senator Fred Akshar spoke out against the plan saying, “It’s time to inject some common sense into the license plate replacement conversation before New York’s government drives yet another fee over the backs of the remaining residents who have yet to flee our state for a more affordable way of life, Albany needs to pump the brakes.”
Presently, only motorists with peeling plates will be required to get replacements.
