Looks like March and April mailed documents are taking 60-70 days, I'm guessing due to the number of employees taking spring break and vacations during this time of the year. My stuff was mailed in early May to DPS, and currently shows my CHL is in the mail. From the day I mailed them stuff to the day they show mine mailed, 38 days.

Who did you pay off at DPS to get your plastic so quick? 1 day in BG check, and I thought mine taking 10 days was fast. It took 65 days before I got my first update, you should feel blessed.
