SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3062. 1. Any vehicle owner who is a member of and has obtained an annual emblem-use authorization statement from the American Legion may apply for American Legion 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 American Legion hereby authorizes the use of their official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section. Any vehicle owner 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 American Legion, the American Legion shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle.
3. Upon presentation of the annual statement 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 American Legion in a form prescribed by the director. 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 pursuant to section 301.144 shall not be required for plates issued pursuant to this section.
4. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the American Legion 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 American Legion emblem, as otherwise provided by law.
5. The director of revenue may promulgate rules and regulations for the administration of 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.
