SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - as Truly Agreed)
301.473. 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of
law, any person, after an annual payment of an emblem-use fee
to the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation, may receive personalized
specialty license plates for any motor vehicle owned,
either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle
or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of [eighteen]
twenty-four thousand pounds gross weight. The Missouri
Junior Golf Foundation hereby authorizes the use of its official
emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized specialty license
plates as provided in this section. Any contribution to the
Missouri Junior Golf Foundation derived from this section, except
reasonable administrative costs, shall be used solely for the
purposes of the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation. Any person
may annually apply for the use of the emblem.
2. Upon annual application and payment of a twenty-five dollar emblem-use contribution to the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation, the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the vehicle owner to the director of revenue at the time of registration. Upon presentation of the annual emblem-use authorization statement and payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees, and presentation of any documents which may be required by law, the director of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized specialty license plate which shall bear the emblem of the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation, and the words "MISSOURI JUNIOR GOLF FOUNDATION - BUILDING THE FUTURE" 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, 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 personalized specialty plates issued under this section.
3. A vehicle owner who was previously issued a plate with the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation's 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 Missouri Junior Golf Foundation's emblem, as otherwise provided by law. 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.
4. Prior to the issuance of a Missouri Junior Golf Foundation specialty plate authorized under this section, the department of revenue must be in receipt of an application, as prescribed by the director, [which shall be accompanied by a list of at least two hundred potential applicants who plan to purchase the specialty plate,] the proposed art design for the specialty license plate, and an application fee, not to exceed five thousand dollars, to defray the department's cost for issuing, developing, and programming the implementation of the specialty plate. [Once the plate design is approved, the director of revenue shall not authorize the manufacture of the material to produce such personalized specialty license plates with the individual seal, logo, or emblem until such time as the director has received two hundred applications, the fifteen dollar specialty plate fee per application, and emblem-use statements, if applicable, and other required documents or fees for such plates.]
5. The specialty personalized plate shall not be redesigned unless the organization pays the director in advance for all redesigned plate fees for the plate established in this section. If a person chooses to replace the specialty personalized plate for the new design, the person must pay the replacement fees prescribed in section 301.300 for the replacement of the existing specialty personalized plate. All other applicable license [plates]
plate fees in accordance with this chapter shall be required.
