Duplicate auto licenses

As chair of the Law and Justice Interim Committee in June 2010, then-Rep. Shannon Augare requested a review of Montana Enhanced Registration and Licensing Information Network (MERLIN), the computer system used by the state Department of Motor Vehicles since 2009. He had been prompted to do so by constituent complaints. The audit, presented at a June 19, 2012, meeting of the Legislative Audit Committee, found significant improvements in the MERLIN system but also revealed that there were 78,000 duplicate license plates in Montana, many of them caused by a system glitch in 2011. Moore testified that he had been pulled over by police because his vehicle had the same license plate number as a stolen vehicle the police were looking for. He stated that 78,000 seemed to be too large a quantity of duplicate plates in a state with just 1 million residents.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag
