State Wants Changes To Motor Vehicle System

Kansas is renegotiating its contract with the company that supplied the state with its new motor vehicle system.

The state’s contract with the company, 3M, was supposed to end Friday. But Kansas Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said the state has a list of changes it wants made to the system before signing off on the contract.

Since the state launched the new $40 million motor vehicle system May 9th many county treasurers’ offices have complained about problems with the system that tie up their clerks and increase the amount of time it takes to process customers.

Jordan conceded the system, in his words, “isn’t perfect,” but he said the state has been pleased with its progress and wants to help the counties that have been struggling with the system.

He said the state is working with 3M to fix the issues.
