NEW YORK CITY — The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) has issued permanent rules pertaining to drug testing that will have an impact upon for-hire-vehicle operator licenses and medallion taxis. The permanent rules codified policy that had been established on temporary basis by the TLC in November. The rules, which become permanent on March 16, 2006, contain the following important requirements:

·Licensees must take a drug test each year.

·For licensees in the first year of a two-year license (at their interim period), drug testing must occur no sooner than 30 days prior to, and no later than, the date one year prior to the expiration date of the license.

·For licensees in the second year of a two-year license (renewal time), drug testing must occur no sooner than 30 days prior to, and no later than, the expiration date of the license.

·Beginning with expiration dates of March 16, 2006, failure of a licensee to be tested by the expiration date of his or her license will result in denial of a license renewal application, if any, and the expiration of the license.
