Missouri's top House official has dropped an attempt to subpoena members of Gov. Jay Nixon's administration to testify before a committee he created.

House Speaker Tim Jones had subpoenaed five current Nixon staffers and his former Revenue Department director to testify about changes that were made in Missouri's procedures for issuing driver's licenses.

The six people all declined to appear as directed by the subpoenas last month, and a Cole County judge temporarily blocked the subpoenas from being enforced.

One day after a Missouri House committee issued subpoenas to several members of Governor Jay Nixon's (D) administration, a Cole County judge has issued a preliminary order blocking the subpoenas.
