On Indianapolis This Week, guests discussed the Indiana U.S. Senate race, changes to the BMV, and the state of the GOP race. 

It's a race that's drawing attention from around the country, Republican Congressmen Marlin Stutzman and Todd Young are looking to replace Senator Dan Coats as he retires from the Senate. 

Rep. Stutzman sat down to discuss the race, why he's fighting the house GOP budget, and if he'll support Donald Trump as the GOP nominee. 

"We're going to let Hoosiers make that endorsement, and I think that's the best place for that to happen. Ya know, this is an interesting election year and it shows that the Republicans started out with 17 candidates, and we're down to two, three candidates and there were some very qualified people that were in the race and I'm surprised how things have progressed, but at the same time, it shows the outsiders are ones that people are looking to because they're tired of the Washington establishment," he said.

Plus, Rafael Sanchez goes on-on-one with BMV Commissioner Kent Abernathy about the changes coming to the way vehicles are registered from 191 ways to 23.

"It reduced or eliminated 163 fees. More importantly, it aligned the fees with the description of them and everything else, so you can go to one place, makes it much simpler, much straight forward," he said.
