JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A new report says Gov. Jay Nixon's administration displayed an "indifference to the privacy rights" of Missourians through its driver's license policies.
The report released Friday comes after a group of legislators, law enforcement officers and other House appointees spent the summer looking into state driver's license procedures that have already been largely abandoned.
The panel said Nixon's administration disregarded state law by making digital copies of birth certificates and other documents submitted by driver's license applicants and by buying equipment to analyze biometric information about people.
Nixon signed a law in July that put a halt to those practices. His administration has consistently denied that the procedures were intended to implement the federal Real ID proof-of-identity law. A 2009 Missouri law bars state officials from implementing Real ID.

The Mizzou Tigers suffered another injury at quarterback, but it should not hurt them on the field.
Backup QB Corbin Berkstresser hurt his left knee during a practice last week. Berkstresser underwent surgery yesterday to repair his meniscus. Athletic officials say it is not clear when he can return to the field. Mizzou is already thin at quarterback after James Franklin hurt his shoulder playing Georgia on October 12.
Maty Mauk filled in well last week, leading the Tigers to a win of Florida last week and winning SEC Freshman Player of the Week honors. Mizzou hosts South Carolina Saturday. 6PM kickoff with all the action here on your voice of the Tigers.
