State lawmakers are considering next steps after today’s legislative auditor’s report detailing multiple causes for problems with the state’s troubled vehicle licensing and registration system, MN-LARS. Republican Representative Paul Torkelson from Hanska says about prospects for fully fixing the system in a reasonable amount of time, “My confidence level is not very high. We’ve had a long history of disappointment here. I’m looking for better results, but I’m very cautious and, frankly, a little bit pessimistic.”
Governor Tim Walz and state Senator John Jasinski are in Faribault today, seeing first-hand how specialty license plate transfers are working in MN-LARS. There were serious problems with that function in the past.
