Kansas still has not paid the final $2 million it owes to 3M Co. for a new motor vehicle system that created long delays after it was introduced in May.

As of Friday, the last payment on the $25 million contract is six months overdue.

Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan has said the state won’t make the last payment until all the problems with the system are fixed.

The revenue department says the program is no longer experiencing statewide problems that occurred during the summer. But spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda says some local issues have not been resolved.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the state sent a total of $560,000 to counties to help pay overtime costs incurred by employees when the system was introduced.
