Indiana 4H Foundation specialty license plate


It’s been nearly nine months since the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles suspended the sale of some specialty license plates. One of those penalized for allegedly offering low-digit plates to large donors was the Indiana 4-H Foundation. Now the organization is in talks with the BMV to lift the suspension.

A BMV spokesperson says there have been conversations and the two sides are working through the administrative hearing process. In a statement on the Foundation's website, Christy Denault, board president, write "We believe this is a simple misunderstanding and are working with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to resolve the issue."

The 4-H Foundation has a new executive director. Liz Ellis was hired this summer and began work in late August. She replaces Shelly Bingle-Coffman, who left in April.

While the BMV stopped the sale of new 4-H license plates in March, those who currently have one could keep it. There were roughly 1,800 4-H specialty plates on vehicles last year.
