BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Officials in Vermont have created a task force to figure out how to restore the licenses of drivers who’ve had them suspended.

Chauncey Liese, the chief of driver improvement at the state Department of Motor Vehicles, is part of the task force and says the group will ask lawmakers to approve a bill nullifying all unpaid tickets before 1991, along with other legislation.

Chittenden County State’s Attorney TJ Donovan tells Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/1Odi0AC ) the bill should include a number of provisions, including waiving the $71 reinstatement fee.

Donovan says the state should stop suspending the licenses of people who fail to pay tickets for non-driving-related offenses.

Liese says the task force will have the driver-restoration legislation ready for the opening of the 2016 legislative season.
