The Missouri Senate is threatening to delay passing the budget for the Department of Revenue over the state agency’s scanning of source documents for driver’s licenses, conceal-carry endorsements and other permits. 

Earlier this week, the Senate Appropriations Committee issued a subpoena ordering Revenue officials to hand over all documentation related to the practice, in order to determine if the agency is sharing information with the federal government or a third-party entity.
