Drivers License Procedures

Several members of Gov. Jay Nixon's administration have declined to comply with subpoenas to testify before a Missouri House panel investigating state driver's license procedures.

Nixon's staff members did not show up today at the times specified to appear before the House committee. Committee chairman, Rep. Stanley Cox, said an attorney for the employees filed a motion today in Cole County Circuit Court seeking to quash the subpoenas. Nixon spokesmen did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Nixon's administration had told the committee the employees are too busy to attend the hearing. The committee appointed by House Speaker Tim Jones is looking into whether state officials tried to implement provisions of the Real ID Act, despite a state law forbidding compliance with the federal proof-of-identity law.
