TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan says the state is withholding part of the payment to the company responsible for the new motor vehicle registration system while problems are being resolved.

Glitches have forced residents throughout Kansas to wait in long lines to renew their tags since the $40 million system went online in May.

Jordan has told the Topeka Capital-Journal the final 10 percent of a $25 million contract with 3M Co. is being withheld.

There's no timetable for making the payment. However, the Department of Revenue is delaying the next phase of its computer modernization that involves driver's licenses. That contract is also being handled by 3M.
