Governor Jay Nixon says the Missouri Department of Revenue is not forwarding information on applicants for driver’s licenses and conceal-carry endorsements to the federal government. He became exasperated with reporters who asked questions about the controversy during a press conference Wednesday at the State Capitol.
“This Department of Revenue and this state of Missouri is not collecting a bunch of un-useful data to send to some sort of magical database someplace to mess with people – it’s not happening, okay? They’re just not doing it, I mean, you know that and I know that,” Nixon said.
Department of Revenue officials have delivered thousands of documents related to its practice of scanning documents to a Missouri Senate committee in response to a subpoena issued last month.
