PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles is delaying the launch of its new computer system.

The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/2eorDAL ) reports the agency confirmed Thursday that the team working on the project doesn’t expect to meet its target launch date in December. It will instead plan to roll out the system by June 30, 2017.

The agency announced plans to build the new computer system in 2006.

The release of new Rhode Island license plates, now slated for April, will also be pushed back until after the system is up and running.

DMV Administrator Walter Craddock says the decision to push back the computer launch was unrelated to issues with the state’s new $364 million public assistance computer system.
