Proposed $2 Fee to Cost Kansas Drivers Extra at DMV
JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. — Kansas drivers could be forced to pay a little extra at the DMV.
Counties in Kansas want to recoup some of the expense that the new DMV computer system caused over the summer, so they’re wanting to pass the bill on to you.
Motorists may be required to pay a new $2 fee.
A hearing detailing the problems with the new computer system in was held in Topeka on Thursday. According to the Kansas City Star, Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan testified that Gov. Sam Brownback plans to create a task force that will find ways to improve the motor vehicle system in Kansas.
In the meantime, costs continue to rise due to employee overtime, comp time and new hires.
The proposed $2 fee would need legislative approval. Johnson County Treasurer Tom Thomas Franzen is trying to drum up support to have it included on the agenda for the Kansas Association of Counties.
