Vic Miller Upset Over Snafu

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Democrats still are making an issue of problems in how the state treasurer's office distributes motor fuels tax and vehicle registration fee revenues.

The latest is Shawnee County Commissioner Vic Miller, who believes his county has been shorted $1 million for each of the last three years.

Distributing $2.5 million a year in such revenues is the job of State Treasurer Lynn Jenkins' office.

She's a Republican who's running for the 2nd Congressional District seat. Democrats have made flaws in the distribution formula as an issue.

Jenkins says her staff caught the flaw when outside auditors didn't for years. But her staff says fixing it will require action by the 2009 Legislature, which frustrates Miller.
