New Indiana auto plate could mark state bicentennial

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The new Indiana license plate that will go on millions of vehicles could be paying tribute to the state's upcoming bicentennial.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman and former Congressman Lee Hamilton are co-chairmen of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission. They are scheduled to unveil the state's new standard license plate during an event Thursday at the Indiana Historical Society's headquarters in Indianapolis.

The bicentennial commission is organizing activities to celebrate the 200th anniversary of when Indiana was granted statehood in 1816.

The new plate design will replace the current standard auto tag introduced in 2008 that features the state flag's torch and stars on a blue background.
