Giglio Votes against ‘Green Light’ Bill

A statement by Assemblyman Joseph M. Giglio (R,C,I-Gowanda) on the passage of the Green Light Bill.

“I am deeply concerned with the negative impact that this legislation has for our county clerks. Their oaths of office are taken very seriously and this bill would create conflict in their efforts to support the United States and New York State constitutions and New York State law. I stand by them and their opinion that we should not be granting illegal immigrants any official government identification. We shouldn’t be discussing this in the final hours of session while doing nothing to help our taxpayers or our students who are burdened with debt. This is a matter of priorities and public safety.”
