FBI Interviewing Former Fee Office Agents

April 29, 2006 - Posted at 12:55 p.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Federal investigators are talking to

former state contractors about the way vehicle license offices have

been managed under Governor Blunt's administration.

A former contract agent for one of the offices tells The

Associated Press she's been contacted several times in the past ten

days by agents from the F-B-I. She said other former contractors

who ran the so-called fee offices have also been interviewed by the

F-B-I.

An F-B-I spokesman says the agency won't confirm or deny an

investigation.

Missouri has 183 offices run by private contractors that collect

vehicle sales taxes and drivers' license fees for the state. The

contracts usually go to loyal supporters of the governor.

The former contractor told The Associate Press the F-B-I is

asking if anything unusual happened when after Blunt took office

last year, including third-party management efforts.
