SB 166, 2015 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3165. 1. Any vehicle owner may apply for special " DARE TO DREAM" motor vehicle license plates as prescribed by this section for any vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of eighteen thousand pounds gross weight, after making an annual contribution of twenty-five dollars to the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission fund. If the contribution is made directly to the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission, the commission shall issue the individual making a contribution a receipt, verifying the contribution, that may be used to apply for the " DARE TO DREAM" license plate described in this section. If the contribution is made directly to the director of revenue, the director shall note the contribution and the owner may then apply for the " DARE TO DREAM" license plate. All contributions shall be credited to the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission fund as established in subsection 4 of this section and shall be used for the sole purpose of funding appropriate activities for the recognition and celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in Missouri.
2. Upon payment of a twenty-five dollar contribution to the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission fund as described in subsection 1 of this section, the payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to regular registration fees, and the presentment of other documents which may be required by law, the director shall issue to the vehicle owner a specialty personalized license plate which shall bear the emblem of the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission and the words " DARE TO DREAM" at the bottom of the plate in a manner prescribed by the director of revenue. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design of the standard license plate, shall be clearly visible at night, shall have a reflective white background in the area of the plate configuration, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of license plates issued pursuant to this section.
3. A vehicle owner who was previously issued a plate with words " DARE TO DREAM" as authorized by this section but who does not present proof of payment of an annual twenty-five dollar contribution to the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission fund at a subsequent time of registration shall be issued a new plate which does not bear the words " DARE TO DREAM", as otherwise provided by law.
4. There is established in the state treasury the "Martin Luther King, Jr. State Celebration Commission Fund". The state treasurer shall credit to and deposit in the fund all amounts received pursuant to this section, and any other amounts which may be received from grants, gifts, bequests, the federal government, or other sources granted or given for purposes of this section. The state treasurer shall be custodian of the fund. The fund shall be a dedicated fund and, upon appropriation, moneys in the fund shall be used solely for the sole purpose of funding appropriate activities for the recognition and celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in Missouri. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary, any moneys remaining in the fund at the end of the biennium shall not revert to the credit of the general revenue fund. The state treasurer shall invest moneys in the fund in the same manner as other funds are invested. Any interest and moneys earned on such investments shall be credited to the fund.
5. The director shall consult with the Martin Luther King, Jr. state celebration commission and the office of administration when formulating the design for the special license plate described in this section. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the enforcement of this section, and shall design all necessary forms required by this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2012, shall be invalid and void.
