Says Cuomo is using public safety excuse to take more money from New Yorkers

New York State Sen. Chris Jacobs, R-60th, criticized what he called “Gov. Cuomo’s blatant money grab on already over-taxed New Yorkers,” in response to the governor’s recent announcement that millions of New York drivers will be required to purchase new license plates beginning next year, regardless of the condition of their existing plates. The cost will be $25 and an additional $20 to keep an old plate number.

“As a former county clerk who ran auto bureaus, I know full-well how many ridiculous fees and taxes the state already imposes on drivers,” Jacobs said. “This is just another example of the Cuomo administration using any excuse to take more hard-earned money from already overtaxed New Yorkers.

“What makes this really galling is that this money grab is being done under the guise of public safety.”
