AG Hill suspends new BMV rule to allow people to change gender on licenses, IDs

Indiana’s attorney general has stalled a rule proposed by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles that would allow people to change their gender on driver’s licenses and IDs.

The rule — that was set to become effective in October — says either a birth certificate or a special Indiana State Department of Health form is needed to change the gender on licenses and IDs.

But, BMV spokeswoman Susan Guyer told the Journal Gazette that Attorney General Curtis Hill didn’t sign off on the rule because the public wasn’t sufficiently informed of the plan.
