301.3118. 1. Any member of Missouri Elks Association
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 [eighteen] twenty-four
thousand pounds gross weight, after an annual payment of an
emblem-use authorization fee to Missouri Elks Association of
which the person is a member. Missouri Elks Association hereby
authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on
multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section.
Any contribution to Missouri Elks Association derived from
this section, except reasonable administrative costs, shall
be used solely for the purposes of Missouri Elks Association.
Any member of Missouri Elks Association may annually apply
for the use of the emblem.
2. Upon annual application and payment of a fifteen dollar emblem-use contribution to Missouri Elks Association, the organization shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the owner to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle. Upon presentation of the annual statement, payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fee and documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized license plate which shall bear the emblem of Missouri Elks Association. 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.
3. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the Missouri Elks Association 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 Missouri Elks Association emblem, as otherwise provided by law. 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. 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.
