MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The state of Vermont has set aside more than $18 million for a new computer system at the Department of Motor Vehicles over six years, but officials say it's still not working properly.

The Burlington Free Press reports officials are working to recoup the costs from the vendor, Hewlett Packard, the fourth company to hold the contract for the computer system. Hewlett Packard officials say the company expects to deliver a successful system, despite the delays.

In the meantime, the DMV is maintaining its 40-year-old system. But Commissioner Rob Ide says there are concerns it could give out and leave the state without access to driver and auto registration records.
