Assemblyman Bill Reilich (R,C,I – Greece) is pleased to announce that the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles has agreed to rescind their decision to require motor vehicle owners to abide to a 10-day window for auto inspections.
After hearing from many of the residents in his district Assemblyman Reilich joined with his colleagues and became a sponsor of legislation that would have established that a certificate of inspection would be valid until midnight of the last day of the month such inspection is set to expire. This legislation (A.9782) would have reversed this new administrative policy change.
As a result of objections from many of the legislators both in the Assembly and the Senate throughout the state, the Department of Motor Vehicles has decided not to pursue this change.
Assemblyman Reilich said “I felt this new 10-day window would have made it very inconvenient for motor vehicle owners, I am pleased that after much urging, this policy will not be enacted at this time.” “This new policy would have made the motor vehicle process much more complicated and burdensome to motor vehicles owners throughout the state.
