SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3123. 1. Any vehicle owner may apply for "FIGHT TERRORISM" 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. Upon making an annual twenty-five dollar contribution to the antiterrorism fund established pursuant to section 41.033, the vehicle owner may apply for the "FIGHT TERRORISM" plate. If the contribution is made directly to the Missouri office of homeland security it shall issue the individual making the contribution a receipt, verifying the contribution, that may be used to apply for the "FIGHT TERRORISM" 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 "FIGHT TERRORISM" 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 "FIGHT TERRORISM" 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 "FIGHT TERRORISM" plate shall bear an emblem prescribed by the director of revenue and shall have the words "FIGHT TERRORISM" in place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE". The insignia shall be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates within the plate area prescribed by the director of revenue. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design of the standard license plate, shall be clearly visible at night, shall have a reflective white background in the area of the plate configuration, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
2. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a "FIGHT TERRORISM" license plate authorized by this section but who does not provide proof of the annual contribution at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new plate which does not bear the emblem or motto "FIGHT TERRORISM", as otherwise provided by law.
3. The director of revenue may promulgate 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, 2003, shall be invalid and void.
