INDIANAPOLIS — A Republican state lawmaker is reviving the debate over specialty license plates one year after a gay youth group's plates were revoked by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.State Rep. Ed Soliday of Valparaiso says he wants to create an eight-member panel to review applications for specialty plates and limit the number approved to 150.

Soliday chairs the House Transportation committee. He led an effort last year to limit the state's number of specialty plates. But it was overshadowed by a successful push by social conservatives to revoke the plates for the Indiana Youth Group. The group counsels gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender children.

The BMV revoked the group's plates at the request of Senate Republicans along with specialty plates for the Indiana 4-H Foundation and the Indiana Greenways Foundation.
