Michigan driving records show that U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers had his license suspended for a month over the summer when a check he used to pay the renewal fee bounced.
The records say the 81-year-old Detroit Democrat walked into a secretary of state branch office on Feb. 2 to renew his license.
But months later, state officials determined the bank account tied to the check had insufficient funds, and his license was suspended June 30.
The suspension was lifted July 26.
A statement from Conyers' Detroit office says the check was inadvertently written from an account that recently had been closed.
The Associated Press obtained the driving records of the 30 major-party candidates for Congress in Michigan dating back to 2003.
