Fight over gay youth plates renewed

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles extended its battle this week over specialty auto license plates for a group that counsels gay and lesbian youth, ordering an administrative law judge to review her findings that the agency improperly revoked the group’s specialty license plate last year.

BMV Commissioner Scott Waddell ordered Administrative Law Judge Melissa Reynolds to re-open the case and assess whether the Indiana Youth Group had been “selling” or “auctioning” low-number license plates. Reynolds ruled last month that the group had violated Indiana law and its state contract by receiving payments in exchange for low-numbered license plates, but found the actions didn’t constitute an auction or warrant the revocation of the plate.

Ritz asked to support Common Core

NDIANAPOLIS — A group of Indiana teachers says requiring teachers to use two sets of education standards will disrupt learning for students.

Members of the group Stand for Children delivered a letter Tuesday to Indiana School Superintendent Glenda Ritz asking her to support the national Common Core education standards. The state has halted implementation of the Common Core standards pending a review this summer by Indiana lawmakers. Some conservatives say Common Core interferes with local control of education.
