SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.475. 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, any person, after an annual payment of an emblem-use fee to the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization, may receive special license plates for any motor vehicle the person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of twenty-four thousand pounds gross weight.
The Brain Tumor Awareness Organization hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section. Any contribution to the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization derived from this section, except reasonable administrative costs, shall be used solely for the purposes of the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization. Any member of the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization 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 Brain Tumor Awareness Organization, the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization 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 statement and payment of a twenty-five 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 special license plate which shall bear the emblem of the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization. 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. In addition, upon such set of license plates shall be inscribed, in lieu of the words "SHOW-ME STATE", the words "BRAINTUMORAWARENESS.ORG". 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 the Brain Tumor Awareness Organization'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 Brain Tumor Awareness Organization'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 Brain Tumor Awareness Organization 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 specialized license plates with the individual seal, logo, or emblem until such time as the director has received two hundred applications, the twenty-five dollar specialty plate fee per authorization, and emblem-use statements, if applicable, and other required documents or fees for such plates.
