California Gov. Newsom announced yesterday he is appointing a Fix-It team to help the chronically mismanaged Department of Motor Vehicles. Newsom said California Government Operations Agency Secretary Marybel Batjer will lead the “DMV Reinvention Strike Team” for six months. Among many responsibilities, Batjer will be tasked with offering recommendations for “new long-term leadership and reform at the DMV.” The news comes as the DMV struggles with a barrage of issues, mostly with issuing federally-mandated Real ID cards and improperly registering Californians to vote through the state’s Motor Voter program. Despite setbacks, the DMV has substantially reduced wait times in recent months. The Gov. also said he will expedite the performance audit of the DMV and review it every thirty days.
