Rhode Island just became the ninth state to automatically register and re-register residents when they obtain or renew a driver's license, unless they opt out. Their stated purpose is to create cleaner voter records and mitigate concerns of voter fraud. In the NYS legislature most Democrats want automatic voter registration to make voting as seamless and easy as possible. Those against, such as NYS Senate Republicans, feel the current system works just fine. Should NYS automatically register residents to vote when they obtain or renew a driver's license?

The US Army Corps of Engineers let a contract to rebuild the barrier island beaches. The contract allowed for the bidder to choose their method of delivery of materials to the work site. The result of this decision is that the 20 vehicle caravans per day carrying 20 tons of material each trip for the next 2 years is causing damage to our homes and roads. Who is going to pay for the repairs?
