ALBANY - A compromise could be close that would solve a dispute over who can get cleared for swifter border crossings.

Federal homeland security officials say a stalemate with New York State over access to motor vehicle records may be ending following an offer by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to give driver's license information to federal agents minus drivers' Social Security numbers.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, in a statement Thursday afternoon provided to The Buffalo News, said Cuomo's recent offer "looks promising."

"We understand a number of New York sheriffs, county clerks, police chiefs, state lawmakers, members of Congress and many other officials who understand why we had to take these measures are urging the governor to work with us on a solution," Wolf said.

"We believe this proposal could lead to a solution for New York," he added Thursday.
