INDIANAPOLIS — The gay youth group that had its specialty license plates revoked by the state earlier this year is looking to overturn that decision with help from the American Civil Liberties Union.
The Indiana Youth Group is appealing the state's decision to end their specialty plates and expects to have a December hearing on the issue. Executive Director Mary Byrne said Tuesday she thinks the hearing will give them a chance to show that selling low-numbered plates to supporters is common practice among groups with specialty plates.
BMV spokesman Dennis Rosebrough says the Indiana 4-H Foundation is also appealing the termination of its specialty plates by the state. He says the groups broke their contract with the state when they sold their plates for more than the $40 standard fee.
