SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.467. 1. Any paramedic or emergency medical technician may, after an annual payment of an emblem-use authorization fee to the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association as provided in subsection 2 of this section, apply for emergency medical services license plates for any motor vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, for issuance either for a passenger motor vehicle subject to the registration fees as provided in section 301.055, or for a local or nonlocal property-carrying commercial motor vehicle licensed for a gross weight not in excess of twenty-four thousand pounds as provided in section 301.057 or 301.058. The Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section.
2. Upon annual application and payment of a fifteen dollar emblem-use contribution to the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association, the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association shall issue to the person, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement which shall be presented by the member to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle. Upon presentation of the annual statement and payment of the fee required for personalized license plates in section 301.144, and other fees and documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue a personalized license plate, which shall bear the emblem of the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association and the words "PARAMEDIC" or the words "EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN" in place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE" to the person. The emblem, seal or logo shall be reproduced on the license plate in as a clear and defined manner as possible. If the emblem, seal or logo is unacceptable to the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association, it shall be the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association's responsibility to furnish the artwork in a digitalized format. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
3. The director shall issue no more than one set of such license plates to a qualified applicant. License plates issued pursuant to the provisions of this section shall not be transferable to any other person, except that any registered co-owner of the motor vehicle shall be entitled to operate the motor vehicle with such plates for the duration of the year licensed in the event of the death of the qualified person.
