New York Legislators Want Counties to Have Authority

NEW CITY, N.Y. — Two Rockland county lawmakers want to make it easier for local limousine and taxi operators to do business in the area. Instead of paying for a license in each town, operators would be able to get a single license from a county agency. However, the county needs the state of New York’s permission to make this change.

Legislators Ilan Schoenberger (D-Wesley Hills) and David Fried (D-Spring Valley) recently introduced a bill requesting that the county be granted this authority. The bill will need to work its way through committee before the state legislature votes on it. A similar bill was passed by the New York legislature in 2001, but Gov. George Pataki vetoed it because, he said, many municipalities were against the bill.
