Senate Bill 1376: Restrictive Drivers License Requirements

Author:
Senator LARKIN

Summary:
This is a driver's license bill which would have required persons under 18 to have a high school diploma or its equivalent or be enrolled in an educational program leading to a diploma or equivalent diploma. Since the State of New York does not recognize diplomas issued through a home instruction program, it appears that these students would not be eligible for a driver's license.

Status:
This bill was introduced on January 29, 2003, and was sent to the Senate Transportation Committee. On June 19, 2003, the bill was referred to the Rules Committee.
While the first year of the 2003-2004 session of the New York legislature ended June 20, 2003, this bill could be re-introduced in January of 2004.

HSLDA's Position:
This bill was opposed.
