CA Puts DMV Improvement Money On Hold

The California Department of Motor Vehicle won't be getting money to help reduce its long lines and upgrade its computer systems anytime soon.

The state's Finance Department is putting a DMV request for 40-million-dollars on hold until at least the spring because of Governor Gavin Newsom's plan to do a top-to-bottom overhaul of the agency.

The DMV made the request earlier this month when Jerry Brown was still governor, saying it needed the money to upgrade its aging technology.

The agency has been plagued by excessive wait times and voter registration errors, blamed on the new Real ID system and software glitches.
