Under the new program, a New York State driver’s license can be suspended when a taxpayer’s past-due bill exceeds $10,000.
The Tax Department is sending out the first round of 1,600 suspension notices to delinquent taxpayers, who will then have 60 days to arrange payment.

A grievance filed by the Buffalo teachers union could mean the end of a program that provides free breakfast for students in their classrooms. The grievance was filed because teachers have grown tired of cleaning up crumbs and spilled milk, and say the classroom food has led to ants. Some parents are planning to meet with the teachers union tomorrow in an effort to convince them to drop the grievance and let the program continue.
