Tioga County legislature will likely join several other counties in opposing pending legislation in Albany. When lawmakers gavel into session at 6 p.m. Tuesday, they’ll vote on resolution opposing bills in the state senate and assembly that will allow illegal immigrants to obtain New York driver licenses by providing foreign identification. Republican state lawmakers have strongly opposed the democrat-sponsored measure.
In other planned action, Tioga legislators will
appoint a member to the Industrial Development Agency. They will also act on a resolution to establish a fee structure for online and in-person applications for Civil Service examinations. Also, on the meeting agenda is a plan to authorize to create and fill one, full-time senior support investigator position in Social Services.
