Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) says the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) 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 today 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?" Nixon said. "They’re just not doing it, I mean, you know that and I know that.”
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.
