SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3106. 1. Any individual who is a former legislator of the Missouri general assembly may receive special license plates as prescribed by this section, 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. Any individual who is a former legislator of the Missouri general assembly may annually apply for such license plates.
2. Upon presentation of the appropriate proof of eligibility as determined by the director and annual payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fee, and other documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized license plate which shall bear an appropriate emblem to be determined by the director, with the words "FORMER MISSOURI LEGISLATOR" 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. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of license plates pursuant to this section.
3. No more than two sets of license plates shall be issued pursuant to this section to a qualified applicant. License plates issued pursuant to 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. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the administration 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, 2004, shall be invalid and void.
