Driver Licenses Could Cost State More; Photos Would Be Black & White

Tools

Will New York drivers be getting less for more?

The state awarded a Canadian company an eight-year contract to create state driver licenses.

The catch is, those license photos will be black and white instead of color.

On top of that, the contract is $38 million more than what the state currently pays.

Sen. Joe Griffo says something's wrong with that picture.

"I think you had a product that worked and you had a product that was cost efficient," Griffo said, "so to change that now, you add cost -- it just doesn't make a lot of sense."

Griffo is asking the state to reject all bids for the contract to produce the licenses.
