Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation putting an end to a controversial policy in which driver's license offices were making electronic copies of applicants' personal documents. Nixon announced yesterday that he had signed the legislation, and the policy change took effect immediately.
Missouri residents renewing their drivers' licenses or registering vehicles could pay more under a bill awaiting the governor's approval. Current law allows local offices to charge $2.50 for licenses that expire in three years and $5 for a 10-year license. A measure passed by lawmakers this month would double those charges.
