A Kansas legislative committee has ordered an audit of the state’s troubled vehicle registration system. Problems with a $40 million upgrade have been causing long lines at some local DMV offices. Senator Laura Kelly, a Topeka Democrat, called the transition to the new system a disaster. Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan says some of the issues aren’t problems with the system, but stem from other things, like a lack of training and problems with internet connections at local offices.
Jordan says the state will withhold payment from the contractor, 3M, until the problems are resolved.
