TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is creating a task force to recommend improvements in the state's motor vehicles division.
The governor said Friday there's no excuse for subjecting drivers and vehicle owners to delays and long lines in dealing with registrations, titles and licensing. Brownback says problems have always existed but were made worse by this year's switch to a new Department of Revenue computer system that was meant to speed things up.
The new Governor's DMV Modernization Task Force will be chaired by Lee Harris, the CEO of Cohen Esrey Real Estate Services. The 21 members are drawn from the private and public sectors, including county treasurers and law enforcement officials.
Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan will serve as a non-voting member.
