In trimming the state's budget last month, Warner ordered the closing of a dozen D-M-V offices across the state.
Some GOP lawmakers point out that ten of the twelve offices closed are in Republican House Districts.
And another is in the district of independent Lacey Putney, who aligns himself with the Republican caucus.

An administration official told lawmakers yesterday that Warner used criteria developed by the D-M-V in determining which locations would close.
