MARIE WALDRON, State Assemblymember … The problems at the DMV have only gone from bad to worse.
Last year, thousands of Californians were stuck in hours-long lines following the failed rollout of the Real ID program. My colleagues and I called for a non-partisan, independent State Auditor report to uncover the mismanagement problems, but it was unbelievably rejected by the majority in the Legislature.
- Officials have botched the rollout of an early renewal program, leaving drivers without nee licenses, even after paying the fee.
- The DMV issues millions of Real ID’s that didn’t meet federal standards and then waited a month before telling anyone.
- Election officials have announced an investigation into whether improper motor voter registration could have changed election results.
Enough is enough! We have renewed our call for a top-to-bottom audit of the DMV. Californians deserve better from their government.:
