HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama’s Speaker of the House says reducing wait times at driver’s license offices is a top priority for a new legislative committee. North Alabama Representative Mac McCutcheon (R-Monrovia) says creating more access to the offices is also a major goal.

McCutcheon says the House Interim Committee on Driver’s License Review was created by HR11 during the recent special session.

Rep. Randall Shedd (R-Cullman), who sponsored the resolution, has been appointed chairman of the interim committee.

Many Alabamians were upset this past year when more than 30 driver’s license offices were either closed or services were reduced. With that in mind, Shedd says he wants to make sure taxpayers are being properly served.

Yet, he admits, the committee will consider closing some offices if needed.  

Here is list of the members of the House Interim Committee on Driver’s License Review:

  • Rep. Louise Alexander (D-Bessemer)
  • Rep. Dexter Grimsley (D-Newville)
  • Rep. Phillip Pettus (R-Killen)
  • Rep. David Standridge (R-Hayden)
  • Rep. Margie Wilcox (R-Mobile)

The committee is required to report its findings and submit suggestions to the House of Representatives no later than the tenth legislative day of the 2017 regular session.

Its first meeting is set for Tuesday, October 4 at 10 a.m. in Room 410 in the Alabama State House.
