Drivers in Connecticut still will not be able to register their vehicles if they have not paid their property taxes.
Members of a state committee voted yesterday to keep the practice in place saying that cities and towns could lose five percent of their car tax revenues.
This comes in the wake of Gov. Dannel Malloy proposing to end the policy.
Malloy says wait times at DMV branches would go down if people weren't required to pay property taxes before registering their vehicles.
