INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Ethics Commission is to consider a settlement between the state and a former Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles official who faces ethics violations.

Indiana Inspector General Cynthia Carrasco confirmed Wednesday that her office had reached a settlement agreement with former BMV chief of staff Shawn Walters. Walters is accused of taking a job with a company that he awarded a lucrative state contract. Carrasco said terms of the settlement would be released after the State Ethics Commission considers it Thursday.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Walters awarded Express MVA a contract in 2010 providing it with BMV workstations and allowing it to charge a lucrative "convenience fee" that effectively doubled the cost of services typically available only at state license branches.
