Gov. Pence approves adoption, veterans measures


Governor Mike Pence has approved a series of measures designed to promote adoption and assist Indiana veterans.

Pence signed into law Tuesday a new tax credit to promote adoption. He also approved the creation of a program for women veterans and a measure encouraging veterans to become teachers.

The signatures come as Pence is running up against the state's deadline for signing a measure, vetoing it or allowing it to become law without his signature. Lawmakers ended their 2014 session earlier this month.

Pence said Tuesday he's still mulling over a pair of measures. One would end the state's energy efficiency program and the other would allow local governments to invest in mass transit.
