Maybe they should at least pass a common sense test before subjecting us to their less than thought out plans.
Here’s an example from Jesse White’s Secretary of State Office:
If you bought a car and applied for plates you used to get a cardboard plate that was screwed on until your plates arrived. The dealer would hand write the expiration date.
A month or so ago the Secretary of State decided dealers needed to PRINT the temporary plate on thin plastic. How long do think this will be attached, the picture was taken on a windy day in a parking lot. Imagine what actually driving the vehicle will do to it:
It gets worse. Dealer can’t print this piece of plastic until the Sales Tax is paid. That comes out of the dealers pocket since the check for the vehicle hasn’t even been deposited yet. That check could take days to clear so the State is taking money from dealers before they get it!
Just more proof Illinois is not business friendly or very smart. I’m sure they think this is progress.
If you hear candidates call themselves progressive or talk about progress, you will get less-than-thought-out programs like this one.
