LODI - Democratic state senators say they are willing to restore millions of dollars to the Motor Vehicle Commission's (MVC) budget for next year. The announcement came today at a hearing in Lodi on service delays at some of the state's MVC offices. State Sen. Paul Sarlo says Democrats were never told that the $5.5 million in cuts was for the MVC.Republicans are questioning the timing of the announcement, contending the Democrats are focused on their re-election campaigns. MVC Chief Administrator Raymond Martinez says service delays will ease when more services can be moved to the Internet, similar to handling banking or insurance transactions online. He says new facial recognition software will also help speed people past the counter.
