SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - as Truly Agreed)
301.3097. 1. Any vehicle owner may apply for "God Bless
America" 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 [eighteen]
twenty- four thousand pounds gross weight. Upon making
a ten dollar contribution to the World War I memorial trust fund
the vehicle owner may apply for the "God Bless America" plate.
If the contribution is made directly to the Missouri veterans'
commission they shall issue the individual making the contribution
a receipt, verifying the contribution, that may be used to
apply for the "God Bless America" license plate. If the contribution
is made directly to the director of revenue pursuant to section
301.3031, the director shall note the contribution and the
owner may then apply for the "God Bless America" plate. The
applicant for such plate must pay a fifteen dollar fee in addition
to the regular registration fees and present any other documentation
required by law for each set of "God Bless America" 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. The "God
Bless America" plate shall bear the emblem of the American
flag in a form prescribed by the director of revenue and shall
have the words "GOD BLESS AMERICA" in place of the words "SHOW-ME-STATE".
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.
2. The director of revenue may promulgate rules and regulations for the administration 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, 2002, shall be invalid and void.
