INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A proposal overhauling Indiana’s specialty auto license
plate system has been approved by lawmakers and is on its way to Gov. Mike
The Indiana House voted Tuesday in favor of the bill that requires all the
groups with plates to sell 500 per year and undergo a financial review once
The bill previously approved by the Senate would create an eight-member
bipartisan commission to review requests from nonprofit groups seeking
specialty plates. The panel would also check reports about how the groups
are spending their proceeds from the plates.
The bill sets a limit of 150 specialty plates. Indiana now has about 100.
A similar push was derailed a year ago by conservatives who sought to revoke
the plate issued to a gay youth advocacy group.
