"I noticed the disconnect in the state's charging you an annual fee, and the license might only be good for 30 days or 60 days, depending on when you bought it. So that's what piqued my interest - got me hooked so to speak."

Cuomo wants to streamline the number of licenses issued annually by the state - from 17 categories to seven. He also wants to reduce fees. The changes will be made as part of his 30-day budget amendments, which will be formally released today.
