Rochester, N.Y. - Convenience store operators are not happy with plans for new black and white drivers' licenses in New York State.
State leaders said they will be secure and provide good value. However, store owners said they present a challenge in checking ages and identities.
"Having a color picture and a color print, especially the red under 21 is important for us," said Jay Schhreiber of Nathaniel Square Corner. "We sell a lot of alcohol and have been very diligent to make sure everyone has been approved properly."
The state made a deal with a Canadian company to produce the licenses. The $88 million dollar contract is a 40% increase from the cost of the previous contract.
