Requires a lender that makes at least one supervised loan in Indiana during a calendar year to remit to the department: (1) an annual fee of $250; and (2) an additional fee of $250 per Indiana branch location (after the first location). Establishes the consumer financial education fund (fund), and provides that the annual fees collected from lenders making supervised loans are to be deposited in the fund.
