INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Customers of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles could benefit from streamlining the department’s fees for services under a measure that Gov. Mike Pence has signed into law.

The legislation signed Thursday follows an audit last year that found that the bureau had overcharged customers more than $60 million since 2013.

Pence faces a Thursday deadline for acting on bills approved during the legislative session. He says he’ll either sign or veto all the remaining bails instead of letting them become law automatically by inaction.

Pending measures include those that would revive a stalled privatization deal for a banquet center at Indiana Dunes State Park, shelter private college police departments from many public records law, and increase Indiana’s medical malpractice damages cap for the first time since the 1990s.
