SACRAMENTO - Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement in response to the Governor's announcement of new leadership at the Department of Motor Vehicles and release of results from the DMV Strike Team:
“After years of mismanagement, illegally registering foreign nationals to vote, and changing the voter registration of tens of thousands of Californians, the governor needs to acknowledge that the DMV is structurally-flawed. The only thing the DMV has been good at recently is wasting taxpayers’ time and money.
“Like the mismanaged High-Speed Rail Authority, Democrat’s solutions for failing government bureaucracies seem to throw more money at them and hope for the best. I wish the new director and staff well, but fear we are just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
“Senate Republicans have been calling for a comprehensive, independent audit and all Californians have gotten are excuses from the DMV. Californians deserve nothing less than a top to bottom audit of the DMV,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.
