SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3124. 1. Any person 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, after an annual payment of an emblem-use authorization fee to Special Olympics Missouri. Special Olympics Missouri hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section.
2. Upon annual application and payment of a twenty-five dollar emblem-use authorization fee to Special Olympics Missouri, that 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 an emblem approved by Special Olympics Missouri and the director of the department of revenue and shall have the words "SPECIAL OLYMPICS MISSOURI" 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 issued pursuant to this section.
3. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the Special Olympics Missouri 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 Special Olympics Missouri 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. 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.
