• House scraps specialty plate plan

    March 01, 2012 No comments

    Indiana House lawmakers have abandoned a plan to clamp down on specialty license plates.

    Republican Ed Soliday, of Valparaiso, pulled the measure during a Wednesday evening session just hours before a key deadline in the 2012 legislative session. The plan would have curbed an expansion of specialty plates that the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has awarded to groups including the National Wild Turkey Foundation and the Indiana Youth Group, which supports gay youth.

    The measure became contentious after conservative activists unsuccessfully tried to ban the youth group’s plates via an amendment. Soliday said the measure had become too politicized. He said he plans to work on the measure again next year.
