SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3052. 1. Any person who has been awarded the military service award or medal known as the "Navy Cross" pursuant to 10 U.S.C. Section 6242 may apply for Navy Cross motor vehicle license plates for any motor vehicle such 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.
2. Any such person shall make application for the Navy Cross license plates on a form provided by the director of revenue and furnish such proof as a recipient of the Navy Cross as the director may require.
3. Upon presentation of such proof as a recipient of the Navy Cross and payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to 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 personalized license plate which shall bear an image of the Navy Cross medal and the words "NAVY CROSS" 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, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
4. There shall be a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees charged for each set of Navy Cross license plates issued pursuant to this section. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of license plates issued pursuant to this section.
5. There shall be no limit on the number of license plates any person qualified under this section may obtain so long as each set of license plates issued pursuant to this section is issued for vehicles owned solely or jointly by such person.
6. 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.
7. The director may consult with any organization which represents the interests of persons receiving the Navy Cross when formulating the design for the special license plates described in this section.
8. 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.
