The Indiana Senate is set to start reviewing a plan overhauling the state's specialty auto license plate system by requiring all groups with plates to sell 500 per year and undergo a financial review once a decade.

The House approved the proposal last month after a similar push was derailed a year ago by social conservatives who led a drive to revoke the plate issued to a gay youth advocacy group.

The plan calls for a new bipartisan commission that would review requests for new plates and check reports about how the groups spend the license plate money. The bill sets a limit of 150 specialty plates, while the state now has about 100 specialty plates.

A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday before the Senate's transportation committee.
