Kerry Messer with Missouri Family Network, a political watchdog organization, had some good news to report via Facebook today.
MOST ALL SCANNING STOPS !!! Effective immediately - all non-commercial driver licensing documents are no longer to be scanned in Missouri's 183
local license offices (fee offices)........ Source document verification at the fee office counter will continue as in the past but without scanning!
THANK YOU to the House and Senate leaders and Sheriffs that have helped pressure the Department of Revenue to start cleaning up their act !!!
CITIZENS: We MUST continue pushing for a full investigation and disclosure if the scandals DOR has been perpetuating for the last several years! This
is only the first step.
and for those with CCW:
CCW Update: All CCW related document scanning ceases effective this morning (7/1/2013). DOR will continue processing CCW endorsement cards through
the end of the year, at which time they will be processed through you local sheriff. This change of venue depends on the Governor signing the bills
that's date the changes. But for now ALL CCW document scanning has stopped. (Note that a couple months ago Gov. Nixon announced that the sheriff's
CCW Certificate would no longer be scanned, but all other papers have continued to go into the new scanned documents database (until this morning). We
believe it is now safe to process your CCW if you have been holding off to avoid scanning. However - many may chose to wait until next January to
apply for a CCW in order to avoid the Department if Revenue altogether.
As required by Federal guidelines CDL and non-citizens of the U.S. will will continue to have their documents scanned.
Like Kerry said, much more needs to be done. Biometric facial ID is still an issue for starters.
Last week staff members from the Governor's office ignored a subpoena to testify in a Congressional hearing about this DOR scandal.
