Memorial Hospital speciality license plate one of two rejected by Indiana lawmakers

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A panel of Indiana lawmakers has rejected a pair of specialty license plates saying the groups don’t have statewide impact.

The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette reports that the lawmakers’ Tuesday vote is a recommendation to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles regarding plate requests from the Indianapolis Children’s Choir and Memorial Hospital of South Bend. The department could still approve the plates because the Interim Study Committee on Roads and Transportation’s decision isn’t binding.

Lawmakers on the panel did recommend approving renewal the plate for the Indiana Native American and Affairs Commission. They also approved new plates for the Indiana Golf Foundation; Indiana Recycling Coalition; and the Indiana Emergency Medical Services Association.

The BMV had no timeline for when final decisions would be made.
