A proposal overhauling Indiana's specialty auto license plate system has been approved by lawmakers and is on its way to Gov. Mike Pence.

The Indiana House voted Tuesday in favor of the bill that requires all the groups with plates to sell 500 per year and undergo a financial review once a decade.

The bill previously approved by the Senate would create an eight-member bipartisan commission to review requests from nonprofit groups seeking specialty plates. The panel would also check reports about how the groups are spending their proceeds from the plates.

The bill sets a limit of 150 specialty plates. Indiana now has about 100.

A similar push was derailed a year ago by conservatives who sought to revoke the plate issued to a gay youth advocacy group.
