Daniels signs measure changing Indiana alcohol ID law

May 13, 2011

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

Daniels signed the law Friday that states only those appearing younger than age 40 must be carded, starting July 1. Current law mandates carding of all individuals.

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

Daniels vetoed a 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.
