Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview on Friday morning said he is open to new measure to boost safety for stretch limousines, but cautioned there are limits to what the state can do for federally certified vehicles.

“We passed regulations that made a major difference,” Cuomo said in an interview on WAMC. “Is there more to do? The Senate passed a bill, we’ll look at it. But anything we can do that is in the realm of feasible we can do.”

He added, “The limitation is what we can do is that vehicles that are certified by the federal government we are pre-empted from regulating. That’s the limitation.”

The state Senate on Thursday approved a package of limousine safety bills that include new seatbelt requirements, a requirement that limousine drivers have commercial drivers licenses, taking limos off the road if they are found defective, increased penalties for U-turns, and new requirements for insurance coverage.

Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Magnarelli in an interview said his chamber would take up some of the measures approved in the Senate, but was unsure which would be considered.

Lawmakers and Cuomo in the state budget approved additional insurance requirements following a crash last October that killed 20 people in Schoharie.

“There’s no doubt that there was a major glitch in the system,” Cuomo said. “Stretch limousines can either be done by the manufacturer or some were just done by these fly by night companies that literally cut a car in half and stretched it.”
