Statement from House and Senate Transportation Chairs on VTRS Contract

Monday, August 12, 2019

St. Paul, Minn.-- Chairmen of the Transportation Committees at the Minnesota Legislature applauded last week’s announcement of a signed contract with a vendor to oversee the state’s new Vehicle Title and Registration System (VTRS). The contract is with Fast Enterprises (FAST) and will replace Minnesota’s Vehicle Licensing and Registration System (MNLARS).

Representative Frank Hornstein (DFL-Minneapolis), Chair of the House Transportation Finance and Policy Committee stated:

“Minnesotans deserve a licensing system that works, and they expect it to be fixed when it doesn’t work. I commend Governor Walz and the Legislature for working together to find a bipartisan solution to improve accountability and efficiency for the people of Minnesota.”

Senator Scott Newman (R-Hutchinson), Chair of the Senate Transportation Finance and Policy Committee stated:

“VTRS is good for Minnesota. We look forward to hearing the details of the contract in the coming weeks at a public legislative oversight committee hearing.”
