WHITE PLAINS - New York's DMV is modernizing its policy to make it easier for married people who want to use their maiden name as their middle name on licenses.

State Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-White Plains) pushed for the change, noting that there was no concrete rule for people who wanted to change their middle name. 

People can now simply bring their marriage certificate to the DMV and use that as proof to change their middle name to their maiden name.

Buchwald says he also wants this policy to be enforced for same-sex couples.
