(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana lawmakers imposed or increased at least 45 different taxes and fees during this year's legislative session.

The (Northwest Indiana) Times (http://bit.ly/2srfwKH ) reports that the increases affect everything from notary services to teacher background checks to fuel prices.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb says he's comfortable paying for what the state needs.

Increases include a 10 cents-per-gallon gasoline tax increase starting July 1 and an additional $15 for new vehicle registrations. Money raised from both fees will go toward funding road construction projects.

Fees have also increased for a variety of court system services.

Lawmakers have also required state licensing for several occupations that have previous seen little regulation such as massage therapists, social workers and manufactured-home dealers. The licenses cost between $10 and $400.
