— The state still has not paid the final $2 million it owes to 3M Co. for a new motor vehicle system that created long delays after it was introduced in May.

As of Friday, the last payment on the $25 million contract is six months overdue.

Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan has said the state won't make the last payment until all the problems with the system are fixed.

The revenue department says the program is no longer experiencing statewide problems that occurred during the summer. But spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda says some local issues have not been resolved.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the state sent a total of $560,000 to counties to help pay overtime costs incurred by employees when the system was introduced.

No, it's more like for profit managed care for people with disabilities.

"Obamacare is like the DMV in charge of your health care."

Except, of course, that there aren't millions of Americans who would be without any benefits of the DMV if not for its new system. Since your concern is obviously only for yourself, however, it's understandable that you would overlook that flaw in your analogy.
