Adventures in bureaucracy

Megan McArdle tries to register her car in DC.

It seems to me that she should be able to send an invoice for legal research services to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and expect it to be paid.

Also, based on my experience, you cannot solve this problem by moving to Maryland instead of DC. The bureaucracy there is just as bad. I spent hours at the DMV in Maryland on multiple occasions. In Ann Arbor I have spent 10-15 minutes on both occasions.
