Issue Position: Helping Montana's Businesses
Mike believes that government should not be an impediment to conducting legitimate business activities. The Department of Justice has major regulatory responsibilities over gaming and driver services. Under Mike's leadership, the department has improved its business practices, reducing delays at the Title & Registration Bureau from 8 weeks to less than one. Gaming license changes have gone from an average of 193 days to less than 50.
The Motor Vehicle Division is implementing a completely revamped computer system that is dramatically improving its efficiency and the services it provides to businesses and the driving public. Driver history and vehicle records can now be searched online, and temporary registration permits are also available online.
