Governor Andrew Cuomo quietly extended an executive order, which expired over the weekend and allowed those with expired registration or driver’s licenses to continue operating without heading to the DMV.
The executive order was extended for one additional month, and includes vehicle inspections, registrations, and driver’s licenses.
The goal, as was the case with the original executive order, is to encourage people who don’t need to go out – to stay home and prevent the spread the the Coronavirus.
While many businesses have reopened, some remain closed – and critics of the latest measure say it will continue to put more stress on the state’s finances – by preventing crucial transactions from being processed.
Last month concerns were raised among those representing auto garages, who said that back-ups would be likely once the state began requiring them.
