Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo Urges State DMV to Act Regarding Real ID Compliance
Wed, Sep 16 2015
Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo called on the New York State DMV to take action to ensure all New Yorkers can comply with the REAL ID Act which was passed by Congress and signed into law in 2005. To date, the NYS DMV has not taken action to ensure that the standard driver’s license held by hundreds of thousands of Monroe County residents complies with REAL ID. This means that these residents will be unable to fly domestically for business and leisure using their driver’s license as identification when REAL ID takes effect. Standard driver’s license holders who wish to fly domestically will be forced to pay an additional $30.00 for an Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL). A visit to a local DMV office is necessary to obtain an EDL.

Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo today warned Monroe County residents of another deed scam that has targeted new property owners.
