An interim study committee met today at the Indiana Statehouse to discuss topics related to roads and transportation. Amongst the legislators involved in the committee were Democrat Senators Arnold and Breaux.
The session began with a discussion and vote on specialty group license plate applicants. Applications from various specialty groups were put through a rigorous selection process before heading to the legislature. The top five license plates selected by the committee will be included in next year’s cycle at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
In 2013, House Enrolled Act 1279 created the special group recognition license plate committee consisting of eight members of the general assembly, and specified that the primary purpose of the committee is to make recommendations to the BMV regarding special group recognition license plates.
The Roads and Transportation Study Committee voted unanimously to send the Lincoln Boyhood Home and 500 Festival specialty group license plates to the BMV for final approval. They will convene again in September hear annual reports from transportation agencies and in October to review renewal applications for specialty license plates.
