Governor Mark Dayton wants the state to charge a two-dollar “technology fee” beginning in fiscal 2019 for transactions on the state’s vehicle registration system to “support fixes of the MNLARS system and provide ongoing maintenance”. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jim Knoblach from Saint Cloud says that’s dead on arrival. “To me it just adds insult to injury. He’s now going to try to charge everyone who uses the system to pay for this disaster. We’re not gonna do that,” Knoblach says. Governor Dayton fires back, “We could leave it with way it is, if that’s not a viable alternative.” Republicans are balking at Dayton’s 10-million-dollar request for the current year to continue fixing the troubled MN-LARS system.
