SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3133. 1. Any vehicle owner, after an annual contribution to the Missouri Travel Council, may receive special license plates commemorating the bicentennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition for any motor vehicle the member 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.
The Missouri Travel Council, in conjunction with the department of revenue, shall design the Lewis and Clark bicentennial special license plate. The background of the plate shall depict a full-color image, covering the entire plate, and lightened across two-thirds of the area so as not to hinder the readability of the license plate registration number. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
2. Upon making a twenty-five dollar contribution to the Missouri Travel Council, the motor vehicle owner may apply for the special license plate commemorating the bicentennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. If the contribution is made directly to the Missouri Travel Council, the Missouri Travel Council shall issue the individual making the contribution a receipt, verifying the contribution, that may be used to apply for the Lewis and Clark special license plate. If the contribution is made directly to the director of revenue, the director shall note the contribution and the owner may then apply for the Lewis and Clark plate.
The applicant for such special license 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 Lewis and Clark 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.
3. 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, 2004, shall be invalid and void.
4. A vehicle owner who was previously issued a Lewis and Clark special license plate pursuant to this section, but does not provide a receipt evidencing a contribution to the Missouri Travel Council or make a contribution directly to the department of revenue at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new license plate which does not commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the enforcement of this section, and shall design all necessary forms required by this section.
