Fifty-five million dollars to begin transitioning to commercially available software before pulling the plug on the problem-ridden MN-LARS driver and vehicle registration system — that’s in a transportation budget bill the Minnesota Legislature passed last night (Friday).

But Torkelson says that’s only for past losses — and they must continue using the flawed system until a new one replaces it.
