Special Focus On Bills Related to the

 

Rogue Department of Revenue Scandal

 

 

Take note that on Wednesday morning of this week the Senate Joint Committee on Administrative Rules will be focusing their attention on Title 12 Department of Revenue,   Division 10 Director of Revenue,   Chapter 24 Driver License Bureau Rules,   Including, but not limited to, policies and procedures relating to issuance of driver licenses which require promulgation of rules pursuant to Chapter 536 RSMo.

Testimony from the Department of Revenue, Office of Administration and the Department of Public Safety regarding their conference budget lines.

Budget Bills for the Department of Revenue, Office of Administration, and the Department of Public Safety have had over $40,000,000. slashed from their budgets by the Senate for not being cooperative in the investigations over the DOR scandal.  As the Senate Appropriations Committee is striving diligently to get officials to explain themselves to the Committee they are very frustrated and angered to keep finding the scandal goes deeper and wider every time they start a new line of questions.  Officials unwilling to answer with transparency are being grilled.  Note: The various line items in the budget are being cut in proportion to the level of difficulty officials make the Senate Committee go through!  THE OUTSTANDING QUESTION IS:  AFTER ALL THAT HAS BEEN UNCOVERED, WHY DO THESE BUREAUCRATS CONTINUE TO HOLD OUT AND REFUSE TO BE TRANSPARENT?  WHAT ARE THEY STILL HIDING THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN DISCOVERED?
