New York A05233 would set strict limits on automatic license plate readers (ALPR), creating roadblocks for the continuation of a national license plate tracking program that relies on such data from the states. It has been referred to the Assembly’s Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection where it needs to pass by a majority vote to move forward.


1. Call the committee chair. Politely urge him to move the bill forward in HIM committee and to vote YES to send it to the Assembly floor.
