Appropriation levels by fund are redistributed to more equitably reflect the cost of supporting the agency’s direct and indirect service programs.
Increased online license and vehicle transactions have resulted in higher credit card processing costs. Expenditure authority is adjusted to accommodate the increase.
Qualified individuals can receive assistance from the department to subsidize the cost of installing and maintaining an ignition interlock device that complies with legally mandated requirements. Funding is provided to support the increased demand on this financial assistance program.
Funding is provided to cover reimbursement expenses related to implementation of SSB 6437, which was enacted during the 2018 legislative session. This new law enables the department to reimburse costs associated with the disposal of abandoned recreational vehicles when they are incurred by registered tow truck operators or other authorized entities.
Funding is provided to continue mailing vessel registration renewal reminder postcards.
Staffing at licensing service offices is aligned with current demand for enhanced drivers licenses.
Funding is provided for computer upgrades and additional staffing to implement Initiative 1639, related to firearm safety measures, that was approved by voters in 2018.
