State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego

The ongoing budget crisis has jeopardized a number of important services for local families. While I continue to push for an end to the impasse and passage of a balanced budget that cuts wasteful spending while protecting critical services for middle-class families, I want to do everything I can to protect local residents from the effects of a government shutdown.
As a result of the impasse, the Secretary of State’s office recently announced that it would no longer mail out reminders to drivers about vehicle registration renewal. Many drivers rely on these notices, especially seniors who may not drive their cars regularly, and without a reminder, many could face costly fines.
In order to avoid past-due fees and tickets for expired license plates, I am encouraging residents to sign up for free electronic reminders at You will need to use the registration ID and PIN number that is printed on your current registration card. If you do not have your current card, or if you need assistance with this sign-up, please call the Secretary of State’s Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980.
As always, my full-time constituent service office is here to help you. Whenever you have thoughts you would like to share or if I can ever be of assistance to you, please contact me at
