   INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Motorized scooters would need to have license plates under a bill approved by an Indiana House committee.
 
   The committee voted unanimously Tuesday to forward the proposal to the full House for consideration. The bill sets a $17.30 charge for registering the scooters with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and a $10 annual excise tax charge.
 
   The bill doesn't include a requirement that scooter drivers have insurance as sought by some local officials.
 
   Evansville police Sgt. Jason Cullum tells the Evansville Courier & Press (http://bit.ly/1fcGE1S ) that the bill is a good first step, but he hopes legislators will also look at issues with insurance and scooter operators who've lost their driver's licenses.
