NEW: Daniels signs measure changing Indiana alcohol ID law

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed several new measures into law today, including one that will no longer require everyone buying carryout alcohol to show identification regardless of age.

Daniels signed the law today that states only those appearing younger than age 40 must be carded starting July 1.

Daniels also signed a bill requiring Indiana retailers to use a computerized tracking system for those buying cold medications used in making methamphetamine. Stores selling ephedrine or pseudoephedrine products will enter the identity of customers into a multistate database and limit how much a person can buy.

Daniels vetoed one bill dealing with forfeitures, saying it went against the state constitution to take much of the proceeds collected through forfeitures and use it for purposes other than a school fund.

“This bill would take more than ninety cents of every dollar collected through forfeiture for the ’expense of collection’ rather than sending it to the Common School fund,” Daniels wrote in his veto message. “That is unwarranted as policy and constitutionally unacceptable.”

The 13 bills Daniels signed today were the last outstanding proposals from the 2011 legislative session. Daniels has already signed the session’s biggest bills into law, including a new $28 billion state budget, a sweeping education overhaul and redrawn political maps that will help shape elections for the next decade.
