Issues

Duplicate auto licenses

As chair of the Law and Justice Interim Committee in June 2010, 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 in June of 2012, 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.[3]
