JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri residents who can prove they lost driver's licenses and other critical documents in the Joplin tornado will get free replacements from the Department of Revenue.
Gov. Jay Nixon signed an executive order Thursday waiving fees for replacement driver's licenses, state-issued identification cards, vehicle ownership certificates, license plates and plate registration stickers.
The Department of Revenue says it will have residents sign an affidavit stating the items disappeared in the tornado. They'll also be asked questions to verify their identities.
The order was one of three the governor signed Thursday.
Another directs the National Guard to supervise debris removal and cleanup in Joplin. The third temporarily bars insurance companies from raising rates or canceling coverage for people living in Jasper and Newton counties.
