ALBANY, N.Y. - New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has approved the Cuomo administration's contract for new driver's licenses that will have black-and-white photos produced by the highest bidder.

DiNapoli's approval paves the way for CBN Secure Technologies of Danville, Va., owned by Ottawa-based Canadian Bank Note, to produce the licenses. Its bid was $38 million over the current contractor, De La Rue, a British company with employees in the U.S.

De La Rue says Thursday it will resume a lawsuit that first challenged the bid as unfair.
