    Massachusetts lawmakers are preparing to scrutinize the troubles at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

    The Legislature's Committee on Transportation announced Monday that it is planning to hold an oversight hearing in July to conduct a public examination of what it called "the management, notice and record-keeping issues'" at the registry.

    The hearing is prompted by a June 21 New Hampshire motorcycle crash that killed seven.

    Connecticut officials twice alerted Massachusetts about a drunken driving arrest against the driver in the crash, 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, but Massachusetts failed to act to suspend his license. Zhukovskyy pleaded not guilty.
