WHEREAS, beginning on August 27, 2011, Hurricane Irene brought torrential rainfall causing record flooding and storm surge throughout the State of New York, and severely devastated areas in the Counties of  Albany, Bronx, Clinton, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Kings, Montgomery, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Rensselaer, Richmond, Rockland, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster, Warren, Washington and Westchester, for which I asked the President of the United States to declare an emergency and a major disaster for the State of New York; and

FURTHER, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 29-a of Article 2-B of the Executive Law to temporarily suspend specific provisions of any statute, local law, ordinance, orders, rules or regulations, or parts thereof, of any agency during a State disaster emergency, if compliance with such provisions would prevent, hinder or delay action necessary to cope with the disaster, and for the purpose of allowing victims of the disaster to replace certain documentation lost in the disaster, as determined by the appropriate Commissioners of the Departments of Motor Vehicles, Health, Education and Taxation and Finance, the Secretary of State or the State Liquor Authority, I temporarily suspend, for the period from the date of this Executive Order until further notice, the following laws:
