SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.471. 1. Any person may receive license plates as prescribed in this section, for issuance either to passenger motor vehicles subject to the registration fees 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, after an annual payment of an emblem-use authorization fee to Ducks Unlimited. Ducks Unlimited hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section. Any contribution to Ducks Unlimited derived from this section, except reasonable administrative costs, shall be used solely for the purposes of Ducks Unlimited. Any member of Ducks Unlimited may annually apply for the use of the emblem.
2. Upon annual application and payment of a twenty-five dollar emblem-use contribution to Ducks Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the owner to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle. Upon presentation of the annual statement, payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fees and documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized license plate which shall bear the emblem of Ducks Unlimited. 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. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the Ducks Unlimited emblem authorized by this section but who does not provide an emblem-use authorization statement at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new plate which does not bear the Ducks Unlimited emblem, as otherwise provided by law. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the administration of this section, and shall design all necessary forms required by this section. No rule or portion of a rule promulgated pursuant to the authority of this section shall become effective unless it has been promulgated pursuant to the provisions of chapter 536.
