SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3061. 1. Any person eligible for membership in the Disabled American Veterans and who possesses a valid membership card issued by the Disabled American Veterans may apply for Missouri Disabled American Veterans 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 Missouri Disabled American Veterans hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section.
2. Upon presentation of a current photo identification, the person's valid membership card issued by the Disabled American Veterans, and payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees and presentation of other documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue a personalized license plate to the vehicle owner, which shall bear the emblem of the Disabled American Veterans, an emblem consisting exclusively of a red letter "D", followed by a white letter "A" and a blue letter "V" in modified block letters, with each letter having a black shaded edging, and shall engrave the words "WARTIME DISABLED" in red letters centered near the bottom of the plate. 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. A fee for the issuance of personalized license plates issued under section 301.144 shall not be required for plates issued under this section.
3. Any person who applies for a Disabled American Veterans license plate under this section to be used on a vehicle commonly known and referred to as a pickup truck may be issued a Disabled American Veterans license plate with the designation "beyond local" indicated in the upper right corner of the plate.
4. 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 under this section is issued for vehicles owned solely or jointly by such person. License plates issued under this section shall not be transferable to any other person except that any registered co-owner of the motor vehicle may operate the motor vehicle for the duration of the year licensed in the event of the death of the qualified person.
5. The director shall promulgate rules to implement the provisions of 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, 2006, shall be invalid and void.
