Pence Announces New BMV Commissioner

Gov. Mike Pence on Monday announced a new Bureau of Motor Vehicles commissioner.  At the same time, he acknowledged about $2 million in new overcharges to Hoosier drivers.  That brings the total to about $57 million to be returned to BMV customers since fall 2013.  An outside audit, coupled with an internal review, identified the latest snafus. Pence also said about $13 million in undercharges were discovered, but Hoosiers will not be asked to repay.  Meanwhile, Kent Abernathy will be the new BMV head.  The current chief moves to a new position at the Family and Social Services Administration.
