The commissioner shall annually, following a renewal of registration, compile and publish in books or bulletins a list of all registered vehicles and shall thereafter compile and publish monthly supplements thereto. The list of registered vehicles shall be arranged serially according to the registration numbers assigned to registered vehicles and shall contain in addition the names and addresses of registered owners and a brief description of each vehicle.
Law-enforcement officers may be furnished with copies of the lists, and copies may also be furnished to other interested parties as may be authorized by the governor or by the commissioner. The commissioner may also furnish copies of the lists to similar officers in adjoining states. Subject to the provisions of article two-a of this chapter, copies may be furnished to any person upon application, at a price to be fixed by the commissioner.
