Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels received 34 enrolled bills Tuesday awaiting his signature to make them law.

Included are:

- House Enrolled Act 1132, which authorizes the Indiana Department of Correction commissioner to appoint certain individuals as correctional police officers and requires them to complete pre-basic training courses.

- House Enrolled Act 1182, which specifies reimbursement and other requirements related to provisions of health-care services to certain county prisoners.

- House Enrolled Act 1346, which deals with various election matters, including allowing voter registrations or updates to be made online.

- House Enrolled Act 1511, which allows a court to award joint legal custody of a child following a determination of paternity. The bill was the focus of a recent Indiana Lawyer article, "Custody concerns," from the April 29-May 12, 2009, issue.

The governor has until May 12 to sign or veto the bills sent to his office Tuesday. According to the governor's Web site, Gov. Daniels has signed 66 bills into law this session. Bills before the governor can be tracked online through the governor's 2009 Bill Watch.
