Members of the Legislature's joint budget committee said Thursday they want leaders of the office to return next month to explain why waits have spiked.

A report issued earlier this year by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Office said wait times have shot up to as much as an hour and a half in some OMV locations as Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration dropped staffing levels amid continuing budget cuts.

New Orleans Sen. Ed Murray complained that he waited nearly four hours for service at his local motor vehicles office. Rep. Kenny Havard, of Jackson, said he's gotten repeated phone calls about lengthy delays.
